UC Graduate and Professional Council (UCGPC) Systemwide Fee Assessment Effective Fall 2023

In July 2021, the University of California Board of Regents approved the UCGPC Systemwide Fee (opens in new window), which amounts to $7.00 annually per graduate and professional student, prorated by academic quarter.

The UCGPC Fee is designed to be an optional UC-wide fee. As of Fall 2023, graduate and professional students across all UC campuses have the choice to pay the fee and contribute to the funding of the University of California Graduate and Professional Council or to opt-out. Additional information for students is available on the UCSF Office of the Registrar website (opens in new window).

It is important to note that the UCGPC Systemwide Fee is not eligible to be paid with funding from federal awards, in accordance with Title 2 Code of Federal Regulations (2 CFR), part 200.454 (opens in new window).

  • For the Fall 2023 quarter, the Controller’s Office will reallocate fees previously allocated from federal awards.
  • As of Winter/Spring 2024, it is the responsibility of each academic department to ensure that the UCGPC Systemwide Fee is not funded by federal awards.

More information about the UCGPC Systemwide Fee is available on the UCGPC website (opens in new window). Departments with questions about allocating offsets for this fee can email [email protected].
