 All new Undergraduate, Graduate Academic, and Graduate Professional students admitted for the 2018-19 academic year will be charged a one-time, life-time document fee of $150.00. Graduate students in the strictly professional degrees (M.D., J.D., D.V.M. and M.B.A.) are excluded and will continue with Pay-per-service charges. More information about the document fee is available at UC Davis Office of Registrar, Document Fee.

The University of California Regents mandates that all students have health insurance. UC Davis automatically enrolls all registered students in the UC Student Health Insurance Plan (UC SHIP). If students have comparable insurance and do not want to be enrolled in UC SHIP, they must apply for a UC SHIP waiver by the date specified for their school. More information about the UC SHIP is available at Student Health and Counseling Services.

Cal Vet exemption covers mandatory systemwide charges assessed by academic programs that receive State support. Cal Vet waivers may not be used for self-supporting programs.

The Access to Student Services fee is required by UC Davis Graduate Studies Policy GS2014-01.

A one-time fee of $159.00 is charged to entering students who hold a F-1 or J-1 visa, excluding UC Education Abroad and non-UC Davis sponsored students (i.e. Fulbright or Vietnam Education Fund).
