Native American Students Will Have Tuition and Fees Waived at University of California Beginning in Fall 2022

 

Beginning this fall, American Indian and Alaska Native students who are tribal citizens of a federally recognized tribe will not have to pay for tuition or fees to attend the University of California.

In a letter dated April 22, 2022, University of California President Michael V. Drake, MD, said the university will launch in the UC Native American Opportunity Plan in the fall of 2022 that will allow tuition scholarships for California residents who are citizens of the federally recognized American Indian tribes.

The UC Native American Opportunity Plan will allow for in-state systemwide tuition and student services fees to be fully paid. According to Dr. Drake, the plan will be funded through existing state and university financial aid, as well as other resources.
