Establish California Residency to Reduce your Cost of Attendance

An option to reduce your overall cost of attendance is to establish California residency at the end of MD year-1.  Establishing a California residency will significantly reduce your tuition and fees starting in year-2 of medical school and therefore reduce your need for borrowing.

The annual non-resident tuition portion is $12,245.  By establishing residency, you will save $36,735, over years 2-4 (as of 2022 tuition rates). To petition for California residency and additional information, visit the UCLA Residence Deputy.
