Some or all instruction for all or part of the Academic Year may be delivered remotely. Tuition and fees have been set regardless of the method of instruction and will not be refunded in the event instruction occurs remotely for any part of the Academic Year. Figures for tuition and fees represent currently approved or proposed amounts and may not be final. Actual tuition and fees are subject to change by the University of California as determined to be necessary or appropriate. Final approved tuition and fee levels may differ from the amounts presented.
Market surveys show that investing in a master’s degree will pay off over time with increased income. A 2019 survey revealed that Clinical Research Managers and Clinical Data Managers with a master’s degree earned a mean salary of $97,000.
The cost of the Clinical Research master’s degree program is approximately $34,000, which includes all program instruction and administrative fees. Program fees do not include books for elective courses, software, parking, or incidentals.
We understand that funding your education is an important consideration when applying to the program. Through grant-writing and scholarship opportunities, the Clinical Research program managers strive to make the program affordable and accessible. There are a number of financial resources available to students:
- A Merit-Based Scholarship is available for incoming students with a minimum of a 3.0 GPA from their previous institution of study (U.S. citizens and permanent residents only)
- Scholarships to offset the expenses for the Independent Research Project
- A variety of core course textbooks are made available for free supported by program grants
- Commercial bank loans are available for full and part-time students
- Government loans are available for participants taking six (6) or more units per quarter
- Veterans and Financial Aid: click here to learn more
- Application fee is $135 for domestic students and $155 for international students
Because the master's degree in Clinical Research is entirely self-supporting and receives no state funding, California residents and non-residents, as well as international students pay the same per-unit fees. All fees are subject to change.

Independent Study Project (ISP) Scholarship Available to Current Students
Two $1,000 Reimbursement Awards are awarded annually.
Any Clinical Research student enrolled in the ISP may apply for up to $1,000 to help offset the cost of conducting the required ISP. This award applies only to ISP-related expenses incurred as part of ISP research and producing the final project, and cannot be applied to Clinical Research course or registration fees. (Receipts are required for reimbursement.)
Students must apply for the ISP Scholarship award by submitting a 500-word essay that briefly describes their ISP, how the reimbursement would assist them with their ISP expenses, and why she/he should receive the financial support.
