Students are also responsible for round trip airfare, local transportation costs, sightseeing activities, books, professional clothing, and other personal expenses. Please refer to the UCDC Estimated Budget for a breakdown of expenses.
Since you are considered a UCSD student during your time away, financial aid will apply to your quarter in DC. All accepted participants' names, along with the estimated budget, are submitted to the Financial Aid Office. Students can meet with the Financial Aid Office to discuss adjustment of their awards due to differences in living expenses.
