Hi !! I am an international student and cannot find the cost of attendance for UCSD. Does anyone have a rough estimate about it?
Also note that UCSD does not offer any financial aid to International students and any merit aid is extremely rare. Plan to pay full fees if you attend.
I was planning to apply Cal but I didn’t because it doesn’t provide financial aid for OOS. I think UC financial aids are only available for the California residents.
CA residents get the benefit of good need-based aid through Cal grants, Blue and Gold scholarships and the Middle class scholarships funded by CA taxpayers. The UC’s offer little merit aid which is highly competitive. OOS/International students should assume they will be full pay unless they do receive some merit aid.
Here is UCSD COA for 2022-23, around $65K for OOS/international students. As stated above, international students will not receive any financial aid form UCSD. Have you already been accepted?
