Fees For Visiting U.S. Students

Fees

The fee for a summer course is calculated based on the unit value the course carries. In addition to the course fee, students are assessed other registration and administrative fees during the summer. Below is a summary of fees that apply to all visiting US students.

Note: The non-refundable deposit of $150 will apply toward your summer balance within 24 hours.

All fees are subject to change without prior notice.

Registration is not complete until the non-refundable deposit is paid in full. Those who are not prepared to pay can submit their registration form and retrieve registration at another time.

This deposit is not refundable under any circumstances even if you drop all courses before they begin. If you withdraw, this deposit will appear as a processing fee charge on your BruinBill account.

Summary of Fees

Registration Fee* $150
Service Fee* $200
2020 Course Fee $360 per unit
IEI Fee $61 per summer (students without a bachelor's degree)
Document Fee

Fee Calculation Example

The following is only an example and is intended to help you understand how fees are calculated. Summer fee assessment varies depending on several factors.

If a visiting undergraduate student enrolled in two courses that carry 4 and 5 units respectively, the total summer balance is estimated at $3,701 regardless of whether the two courses are taken in one or two sessions:

Summer Fee Calculation Example

Registration Fee $150
Service Fee $200
4-unit course unit fees $360 x 4 = $1,440
5-unit course unit fees $360 x 5 = $1,800
IEI fee $61
Document Fee $50
ESTIMATED TOTAL $3,701

Fee Descriptions

Instructional Enhancement Initiative (IEI) Fee: The IEI Fee is assessed to all students without a bachelor's degree and cannot be waived. For more information, visit the IEI webpage.

Material Use Fee: A small number of courses may carry additional Materials Use Fees; the fee will be assessed to all student enrolled in any of the courses listed on the Course Materials Fees webpage.

Document Fee: Document fee covers a lifetime supply of official transcripts mailed by USPS first class mail. Summer-only visiting students will be assessed a one-time document fee during their first summer term; returning summer-only students will not be subject to the document fee.

Payment Delinquency

Although the majority of students with delinquent balances will experience course cancellations on May 15, June 19, and July 31, not all students will be affected.
