COA LL.M. Hybrid Option

The Cost of Attendance (COA) or budget for a student is an estimate of that student’s educational expenses for the period of enrollment.

See the chart below for the COA for a student in the LL.M. hybrid option.

Living expenses are estimates based on a single professional (graduate) program student at UC Berkeley. Students should consider their own spending patterns and of the possibility of unforeseen expenses when planning their budgets.
