University fees are the same as for a quarter on campus, but the cost of living in Washington is higher. Estimated total fees and living expenses (including round trip airfare, housing, food and meals, books and supplies, local commuting, clothing, and other personal expenses) per quarter run in the range of $9,500 - $11,000. Please refer to the UCDC Estimated Budget (PDF) worksheet. Of course, this will vary for different individuals.
Financial Aid does apply for UCDC! Once accepted into the program, the participants' names will be submitted to the financial aid office, so that the individual awards may get adjusted to the different living expenses. Additional scholarships, such as the Robert Matsui Fellowship, may also be available.
