Domestic Applicants

Fees and financial aid information for domestic applicants (U.S. citizens and U.S. permanent residents)

Domestic = US Citizen or US Permanent Resident

Please note: The figures quoted below reflect information available at the time this document was prepared. Figures differ depending upon whether a student is a California resident or a nonresident of California.

Establishing California residence: It is generally possible for domestic students to establish California residency and avoid paying nonresident tuition charges after one year in California, if appropriate steps are taken before the fall quarter of their second year begins. The UC Davis General Catalog contains more specific information.

Chances for admission and/or financial aid: Acceptance for admission and awarding of financial aid depend on how each applicant’s record compares with those of many other applicants. It is therefore impossible to estimate an individual’s chances until all applications have been received and examined.
