*Fees are subject to change without notice.

**If students apply for financial aid and demonstrate need, students may be eligible to receive grants and/or loans. UCSF sets aside 33% of revenue generated from the approved fee increases to mitigate the impact of higher fees and other costs on students with financial need.

***If you already have health insurance, you may qualify to waive out of the Student Health and Counseling Insurance Plan. If you do not have health insurance, you will be required to enroll in the Student Health and Counseling Insurance Plan.
