Fees and Financial Aid for Teaching Credential


Fees and Financial Aid

Financial Aid Handout

We recently completed a reorganization of our course schedule and the information below reflects changes resulting from this reorganization.

The teaching credential/M.A. program can be completed in less than two years.  The teaching credential program begins in August and ends in June (Summer, Fall, Winter, Spring quarters).  Upon earning a teaching credential, students may choose to complete the M.A. in two additional part-time quarters (Fall and Winter).

To help you understand the cost of attending the Credential quarters of the program, we offer the following resources and information:

Tuition.  Visit UC Davis Current Fees and Tuition page, click on the dollar amount for the Education Credential Program for California Resident (or International Student if appropriate) for a breakdown of the tuition.

Budget.   Visit Financial Aid Cost of Attendance by Program to determine your total budget which includes potential expenses of tuition, books, mileage, health insurance and living expenses.  The total budget listed is the maximum amount of student loan you may take either through the University or outside lenders to attend the program.  Your actual expenses may be less, depending on your personal circumstances.   One example is in the area of Health Insurance which has an option to be waived if you have comparable coverage.  Visit UC Health and Counseling Services.

Please review the attached Financial Information handout for information on the different financial options.  For general financial aid information and to answer your questions regarding your financial award, please visit the Office of Financial Aid. You can reach them by email gradfinaid@ucdavis.edu or phone (530) 752-9246.
