Fees and Financial Aid for Teaching Credential

Fees and Financial Aid

Financial Aid 2024-25

The teaching credential/M.A. program can be completed in less than two years. The teaching credential program begins in late July/early 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 the Credential program, we offer the following resources and information:

Tuition. Visit UC Davis Current Fees and Tuition, select 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 view the total budget which includes potential expenses of tuition, books, mileage, health insurance and living expenses. 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.
