In addition to tuition, UC Berkeley students pay several types of fees, including a campus fee, tuition fees, student services fee, and others. A summary of these fees is included below. All fees are automatically billed to your account and will be reflected on monthly electronic bills. All fees are subject to change. (For total fees and a comprehensive student budget, visit Financial Aid’s Cost of Attendance page.)

Financial Aid Recipients

The Financial Aid and Scholarships Office releases financial aid no sooner than 10 days before the start of instruction, as long as a student meets the eligibility requirements. Students can check the status of their aid by visiting CalCentral. If financial aid payments exceed charges, the extra funds will be issued to the student as a refund 5–10 days after payments are posted. If a student’s financial aid payments do not cover all of their charges, the student is responsible for paying the remaining balance.
