On-Campus SSGPDP:

The estimated Self-Supporting Graduate Professional Degree Program (SSGPDP) annual fee for the on-campus Masters in Conservation and Restoration Science (MCRS) students entering in Fall 2020 is $25,200 for the 2020-2021 academic year.

The Masters in Conservation and Restoration Science is a 2-year program.  Fees are subject to change, both before students enroll and during a student’s enrollment.  UC Irvine bills for fees each quarter.

Paying for a University of California education can seem daunting. When you consider our extremely high placement rates and our average alumni’s salary, it’s not actually so scary.

On-campus SSGPDP program fees do not include fees and expenses such as, but not limited to, graduate student health insurance and other miscellaneous campus fees, books, supplies and course materials, room and board and living expenses, transportation expenses, and student services funded by the University of California Student Services Fee.  On-campus SSGPDP program fees do include the cost of compulsory graduate student campus-based fees.  Please note that the MCRS is a self-supporting graduate degree program; thus, certain fee waivers traditionally accepted by the University of California may not be accepted (for example, we do not accept CalVet waivers).  Please contact cchunt@uci.edu for further information.

Please note that students admitted to the MCRS program are not eligible for the on-campus graduate housing guarantee, and on-campus housing is limited.
