12 Fees and Expenses Tuition For the academic year, tuition for the Master of Laws (LL.M.) program was U.S. $49,450.* Other Fees For the academic year, the university estimates that a student should budget a minimum of $1,500* per month for living expenses (food, rent, other expenses). Law school students should also anticipate annual expenses of approximately $1,200* for books and supplies. These figures do not include transportation costs. You should therefore bring adequate funds for air travel to and from Davis and for local travel in Davis. Davis has a good local bus system and is a very bicycle-friendly town. If you plan to buy or bring a car, you should also budget for expenses such as car insurance, gas, parking and maintenance. Students who plan to bring family members with them to Davis should budget an additional $500* per month in living expenses for a spouse and $250* per month for each dependent child. Health insurance for all family members is essential and can cost several hundred dollars a month. Please note also that child care can be expensive; full-time child care may cost $800 per month or more. In planning their budgets, students need to take into account their own spending patterns and the possibility of unforeseen expenses. International students admitted to the university will be required to confirm the availability of support sufficient to meet academic fees and expenses. Sponsored students (that is, those students not funded by private individuals) are required to provide a letter from their sponsoring agency or government, detailing the terms of the scholarship award as verification that sufficient funding is available. For additional financial information and opportunities, please contact us at Initial Expenses Every student is expected to have sufficient funds to cover initial expenses. You will need the amount of your tuition and fees (in cash or in the form of a valid letter of sponsorship guaranteeing payment of fees) plus an initial down payment for housing (landlords often ask for the first and last months rent plus a security deposit), food and personal expenses. Tuition and fee payments may not be deferred. It is suggested you bring a minimum of $25,000* for immediate expenses. This will cover your fall semester s tuition and fees plus various initial expenses. This money should either be wired from your home bank to a bank in Davis or brought in the form of travelers checks (with at least $500 in smaller denominations) rather than in the form of a bank draft. Davis banks will hold your bank draft for up to two weeks to verify that there are funds to support the draft before money will actually be released for your use. Medical Care Coverage All students are required to purchase graduate student health insurance at the time tuition fees are paid. UC Davis automatically enrolls all registered students in appropriate health insurance plans. The premium for was approximately $3,954* for the academic year. A waiver of this requirement may be granted to those students who meet the University requirements and can provide proof of comparable coverage. Please note that student health insurance coverage does not begin until the first day of class. In addition, some medical services are not covered by this insurance and must be paid for by the student, including the cost of eye glasses or contact lenses and dental care. You must also purchase health insurance for your family members. We can provide information about coverage options. The Admissions Officer can answer your questions about insurance coverage and the waiver.
