Estimated Additional Cost of Attendance

In addition, students can expect to pay for books, health insurance, housing, transportation, and other personal costs. Please visit the UC Berkeley Financial Aid & Scholarships website for estimated cost of attendance.

Student Health Insurance Plan*

The University requires that all students have major medical insurance, and provides the Berkeley Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP) to meet this requirement. For complete information, including cost of coverage, please visit the SHIP Website

  • All Abbey MRED+D students will automatically be enrolled in SHIP for the all three academic terms of the degree program. 
  • Students who have comparable insurance coverage may apply for a waiver from SHIP enrollment (and fees).  In order to waive SHIP, you must be enrolled in a medical health insurance plan that meets ALL of the waiver criteria guidelines of UC Berkeley for the entire SHIP term.  Please note that the waiver criteria may be updated throughout the year. You must meet the waiver criteria in place at the time of your waiver submission to be waived out of SHIP.

Actual tuition, fees, and charges are subject to change by the Regents of the University of California and could be affected by State funding reductions. Accordingly, final approved levels (and thus a student’s final balance due) may differ from the amounts shown.
