 More Information:

Health Insurance: Since the student will be in another state, the insurance policy might be different from the current one.

Tuition:

University tuition fees for the Washington Program are the same as a regular quarter on campus.

Optional Summer Elective:

You will only pay tuition during Summer Session if you take the optional elective class. The cost of tuition is specific to each university. See UC Davis Summer Session Fees to see the cost of the 4-unit elective class.

Airfare:

Air travel costs can vary widely and get more expensive the sooner the flight. Be sure to purchase your tickets as early as possible! Also, expect to spend around $40-80 getting to the UCDC Center from the airport. Check out Travelocity, Hotwire, and Expedia for easy flight searching. If you land at Dulles, Super Shuttle will be your best option to get to the UCDC Center. You can take a taxi, Super Shuttle or the metro if you land at Reagan National Airport. Check out our airport page to learn more about choosing the best DC airport for you.

Local Transportation:

If you need the metro to reach your internship, you can expect to spend around $50 bi-weekly. Also consider the costs of whatever special trips you want to take while in DC (taxi, bus, etc). Check out our Pinterest page and local transportation page for transportation information. To find the exact cost of your commute, use the metro trip planner (make sure to choose a weekday at rush hour to ensure the most accurate pricing).

Personal Expenses:

Washington DC has an endless supply of restaurants, bars, shows, and more! While some of these options are more expensive than others, there are many fun things to do on a budget. Keep an eye out for fun and inexpensive things to do around the city (festivals, talks, museum exhibits, etc). Also, carry your student ID with you so you can take advantage of student discounts offered by theaters, museums, and other DC organizations.

Financial Aid:

Financial aid will apply normally as if you were taking the equivalent units on campus in Davis (summer session students must take the optional elective course to be eligible for aid). See our financial aid page for more details.
