Fees include required health insurance coverage.
As a condition of enrollment all registered students at the University of California are required to meet the university’s health insurance mandate. Registered UC Berkeley undergraduate and graduate students are automatically enrolled in the Berkeley Student Health Insurance Plan(SHIP) as a way to meet this mandate. You may be eligible to waive this requirement if you already have health insurance coverage. For more information regarding SHIP, including waiver eligibility requirements, please visit University Health Services' Student Health Insurance Information.

Undergraduate Financial Aid

Graduate Fellowships and Financial Aid

Each year Berkeley Social Welfare directly awards or administers approximately two million dollars in support to graduate students through fellowships and stipend-based training programs. At Berkeley, 90% of all graduate students receive some form of financial support.

Educational financing needs are diverse, and vary according to individual circumstance. In addition to a personal contribution to pay for graduate school, most graduate students receive some form of financial assistance through a combination of a variety of resources. Explore the resources below to help you understand the variety of options and resources for financial assistance. You should be planning any needed financial assistance arrangements as far in advance of enrollment as possible.
