Fee Information

For School of Law cost of attendance, please visit the Financial Aid Cost of Attendance page.

Additional information concerning fees and refund policies (Title IV Refunds) is located on the Financial Aid Website.

The tuition, fees, and charges posted here are estimates based on currently approved amounts. These figures may not be final. 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. The amounts shown on this page excludes health insurance in the totals. Campus-Based fees are estimates subject to approval by UCD campus committees processes and actions.

UC Davis automatically enrolls all registered students in the UC Davis Student Health Insurance Plan (Davis SHIP). If students have comparable insurance and do not want to be enrolled in Davis SHIP, they must apply for a Davis SHIP waiver by the date specified for their school. More information about the SHIP is available at through Student Health Services.

Fee Payment Deadline

Tuition and Fees are due on September 15 for fall semester and January 15 for spring semester. You are responsible for paying your account balance by the deadline. You can view your outstanding account balance by accessing SISWeb. For information about available fee payment methods see the Cashiers Office.

Deferred Payment Plan

The Deferred Payment Plan (DPP) allows students to pay tuition in monthly installments. You may use the plan on a semester-per-semester basis or apply once in the fall for the entire academic year. To enroll in the DPP, please visit MyBill.

Returned checks

All students whose registration fee payment checks are returned for insufficient funds are not considered registered students and will be withdrawn from all classes. You will not receive credit for the academic term, and you must apply for readmission for the term in which you wish to re-register.

Law Student Drop for Non-Payment Policy

Law students who have not paid tuition, fees and any outstanding balance due by the Final Fee Payment Deadline for Law Students will be canceled from their future term, and all registered classes for the future term will be dropped for non-payment.

The Final Fee Payment Deadline for Law Students is always October 15 for the fall semester and February 15 for the spring semester.

Law students who wish to register after having been dropped for non-payment must:

  • Pay the outstanding balance due.
  • Take proof of payment to the Law School Registrar in King Hall, Room 2010.
  • Once reactivated, register for classes via Schedule Builder.

Law students who choose to withdraw from the current term or not to be reactivated for the future term, are still responsible for current term tuition, fees and any outstanding balance due. Law students who still have an outstanding balance due as of the last day of the examination period will be required to petition for readmission under Law School Regulation 5.4.

Fee Refund Schedule

The Schedule of Refunds refers to calendar days (NOT instruction days) beginning with the first day of instruction. The number of days elapsed is determined from the date the completed separation or leave of absence request is filed with the Law School Registrar and it is presumed that no university services will be provided to the student after that date. New students who receive federal financial aid and withdraw during the first academic term may have fees refunded according to the Modified Fee Refund Schedule.
