Program Fees - Master of Public Health (Self-supporting Professional Degree)

Program costs will be assessed on a per-unit basis. California residents will qualify for a California Resident Fellowship, which will reduce their per-unit costs. Current projected program fees are as follows for 2022-2023:

  • Non-California Resident Per-Unit Cost: $1050
  • California Resident Per-Unit Effective Cost: $642

Please note:

  • Figures for tuition and fees represent currently approved or proposed amounts and may not be final.  Actual tuition and fees are subject to change by the University of California as determined to be necessary or appropriate.  Final approved tuition and fee levels may differ from the amounts presented.
  • The per-unit cost does not include UCSD graduate student fees. 
  • The per-unit cost does not include student health insurance. UCSD's graduate student health insurance is projected to cost $1335 per quarter for the 2022-2023 academic year.
  • Projected costs do not include housing, parking, course materials, or other costs of attendance.

Based on these projected costs, California residents can expect their per-unit program fees (excluding campus fees and health insurance) to average around $23,000 per year, and out-of-state residents can expect their per-unit fees (minus campus fees and health insurance) to average around $38,000 per year. However, we anticipate most MPH students will take between 36-44 units in their first year, and 20-28 units in their second year. Thus, per-unit first year costs will be higher than second year per-unit costs for most students.
