    Tuition and Fees

    • Will there be a reduction in tuition or fees due to the transition to remote instruction?
      • No. You can find this information on the UC Office of the President’s website:
      • Some or all instruction for all or part of Academic Year 2020-21 may be delivered remotely. Tuition and mandatory fees have been set regardless of the method of instruction and will not be refunded in the event instruction occurs remotely for any part of the Academic Year.


    • I am planning to graduate in the in the Summer 2020 or Fall 2020 quarter; will any of these changes impact when I get my degree?
      • Probably not. All UCI’s departments, schools, and programs are working hard to accommodate graduating students so there will be no delay in awarding of degrees. Contact your academic advisor if you plan to graduate in Summer or Fall and have questions about completing your degree. Due to volume, allow your academic advisor between five and seven days to respond.

    Academic Progress and Review
