Financial Aid Estimator

The Financial Aid Estimator is for prospective and current undergraduate, dependent, California resident students living in on-campus residence halls. By answering a few simple questions, the calculator will present you with an early estimate of your full-time 2018–2019 cost of attendance and financial aid at UC San Diego.

When you complete the calculator online form, you are not applying for aid.

Have these documents or amounts ready before you use the calculator:

  • The federal income tax returns filed by the student and the student's parent(s) from two years’ ago (For example: 2018-2019 estimator will use 2016 tax return information)

  • The W-2 forms and/or pay stubs with year-to-date information for the student and parent(s) from two years’ ago (For example: 2018-2019 estimator will use 2016 tax information)

  • Current bank and brokerage/investment statements
