Cost is a big factor in deciding where you want to live and study. Living in Riverside is less expensive than Los Angeles or San Francisco, but a little more expensive than the U.S. average because housing is a little more expensive. 

Costs for Students

UCR is one of the only schools that offers scholarships to undergraduate international students through the Non-Resident Achievement Scholarship, for international and out-of-state students. International students can be awarded up to $4,500 per quarter.*
