University Of California-Merced
Merced, United States- California


University description (as per official university website)


The history of UC Merced dates back to 1988, when the UC Regents first authorized planning for at least one additional campus based on projections of long-range enrollment demand. From an initial review of more than 80 sites in the San Joaquin Valley, 20 were initially advanced for additional study.

A Long-Term Vision

Eight sites were then further evaluated and visited by a senior level task force, leading to the identification of three sites which were selected for detailed analysis and for inclusion in a full environmental impact report. Following this careful process, the Board of Regents selected a site in eastern Merced County adjacent to Lake Yosemite Park as the location for the 10th campus of the University of California in May 1995.

The Merced County location was selected based upon a number of factors, including the following:

* The land was to be donated by the Virginia Smith Trust, a charitable trust that provides college scholarships to Merced-area high school students.
* Adequate water was available for university needs.
* The county government had initiated a planning process to assure compatible development of adjacent land and good transportation access.
* Merced is centrally located with easy access from communities in the San Joaquin Valley, including the Valley's largest city, Fresno.

By 1997, UC Merced had established a regional office at Merced College, and the UC Fresno Center also served as a focal point for the new UC Merced campus.

In 1998, the university joined with the Merced County Board of Supervisors, the Virginia and Cyril Smith trusts, the City of Merced, and the Merced Irrigation District to initiate a collaborative planning process for the university community. The planning process produced a concept for a campus and community that could grow together in harmony with the landscape.

Financial Aid

The Cost of Attendance (COA) is just an estimate and includes ALL expenses to attend the University for one year, not just expenses paid directly to UC Merced. The COA includes average tuition/fees, books and supplies, room and board, personal expenses, transportation expenses and a health insurance allowance and varies depending on whether you live on-campus, off-campus or at-home with relatives. Your actual expenses may be different and most items are not paid directly to the University. The only Cost of Attendance items paid directly to the University are tuition/fees and on-campus room and board if you choose to live on-campus.

Standardized budgets are expressions of average costs. They are intended to provide sufficient funds for most students in most circumstances to pay for their educational expenses. The budget worksheet for undergraduate students can assist you in determining your direct costs.


Direct costs are those costs paid directly to the University and billed through your UC Merced student account. Direct costs are different from the estimated Cost of Attendance. The Cost of Attendance is an estimate of expenses and includes items not paid directly to the University. Direct costs typically only include fees/tuition and on-campus room and board, items that you will receive a bill for. Your actual direct costs will vary depending on things such as whether you attend full or part-time, live on or off campus, etc.


Net Cost is the amount of direct costs (items you are billed for) you must pay out-of-pocket that is not covered by your financial aid after financial aid is applied. Your net cost is always lower than the Cost of Attendance and in many cases, much lower or $0.
