Tuition, Costs, and Financial Aid
Tuition and Fees

U.S. citizens and permanent residents are eligible to apply for federal financial aid programs, which include student loans. We encourage you to apply for financial aid as early as possible. To be eligible for federal financial aid, students must be registered in a minimum of 6 units per semester. Students who choose to take a less accelerated path toward completion of the degree should be aware that this will impact federal financial aid eligibility.
To apply for federal aid, complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
Students may be eligible for the following funding options to help in paying tuition:
- Corporate sponsorship: Some companies provide full or partial tuition support for employees. Preparing a request for corporate sponsorship can help maximize the likelihood of obtaining your company’s support. Please contact your admissions counselor for more information on how to create an effective request.
- Veterans Benefits
- Student loans: U.S. citizens and permanent residents can apply for Federal Direct Loans or Federal Direct Graduate PLUS loans by completing the FAFSA. Any student can apply for a private student loan.
One of the ways that students fund their master’s degree program is through employer sponsorship. While your company may not advertise that this funding is available, they may have funds available to you if you put in a request.
Beyond funding, employers can also support your degree progress through adding flexibility to your schedule and providing new challenges and opportunities to take advantage of your growing skill set. Having a scheduled conversation to discuss your professional development goals is a great idea to help foster support, in whatever form it may take.
Private Loan Option for International Students
Private loans (also known as alternative loans) can help fill the gap between the cost of education and the amount of other financial aid offered. Private lenders vary in interest rates, terms, and eligibility requirements.
The University of California, Office of the President, provides a list of private loan lenders for international students, however you may choose any lender. You may visit the Berkeley International Office website for more information. Please also see the University of California Code of Conduct in Regard to Preferred Lender Arrangements.
