Costs and Financial Aid

The newly revised amounts for the 2024-2025 academic year will be posted in late summer and can be found on the Registrar’s website. The listed fees include all costs for the program, except for books, and any air, ground, or rail transportation required to attend the in-person sessions.

The MHCID is a one-year program.

  • Fees are subject to change, both before students enroll and during a student’s enrollment. UC Irvine bills for fees each quarter.
  • Fees are paid in four equal installments at the beginning of each quarter of the program.
  • Fees include software and local travel expenses (e.g., hotels, meals in Orange County) for the accelerated courses.
  • Fees do not include other living expenses, student health insurance, or specific campus-based fees (e.g., student recreation center).

Please note that the MHCID is a self-supporting degree program; thus, certain fee waivers traditionally accepted by the University of California may not be accepted. For example, we do not accept Calvet Waivers nor is there a discount for “in-state” students. However, all students will be eligible for financial aid.

The MHCID program offers two types of fellowships. The Chair’s Fellowship is a merit-based fellowship awarded to students who demonstrate exceptional professional skills or leadership. The Inclusive Excellence Fellowship is awarded to students who demonstrate a commitment to inclusive excellence through their work and/or their own background. All admitted students are considered for both fellowships. Fellowship decisions are made by the admissions committee and announced by the start of Fall quarter.
