Eligible Degree Programs

Summary: Degree programs and other programs of study are eligible for reduced fees when they receive funds from the university.


Please be sure to verify that the program of study you wish to pursue is eligible for reduced fees.

Most degree programs are eligible for reduced fees. However, there are some exceptions. Regular university courses of study that receive university funding are eligible; some programs are self-funded solely through tuition or other funding sources, and these programs are not eligible.

In addition, please be sure to review the degree program requirements. The required course of study must permit students to enroll in the number of units allowed by the reduced fee policy (per quarter):
" .... 9 units or three courses, whichever provides the greater benefit to the employee." Personnel Policies for Staff Members

Examples of programs that are not eligible for reduced fees:
  • Executive MBA Program (EMBA)
  • Fully Employed MBA Program (FEMBA)
  • Health Care MBA (HCEMBA)
  • Master of Advanced Study in Criminology, Law, and Society
  • UCI ACCESS courses offered through University Extension (UNEX)
  • Master of Science in Nursing may not be eligible due to course load requirements. Please verify with program counselors.
