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.

Spring fees are due in mid-January, summer fees in mid-May, and fall fees in mid-August. Payment method info is here: http://studentbilling.berkeley.edu/PaymentOptions.htm
**If you have comparable insurance, you may request to waive enrollment. Go to the University Health Services website for more information. Hybrid option students do not pay for SHIP during the spring and fall semesters while studying online.
***Living expense estimates for an average single student in a professional program at UC Berkeley for a nine-month academic year from August to May, based on the UCOP Graduate COA Survey Report 2017 with San Francisco Consumer Price Index and Residential Rent CPI adjustment for 18-19.
