Although the INP supports all first year graduate students with a stipend and reimbursement of education fees, foreign students are advised that additional tuition costs are incurred for which the INP or the relevant academic department cannot provide reimbursement during the subsequent years. Support for this additional tuition may be paid directly by the student or may be provided by one of our faculty members. Outstanding foreign applicants are encouraged to contact relevant faculty to determine if they can commit to supporting the student throughout their graduate career at UC Irvine. Without this long term financial commitment, INP is reluctant to accept a foreign student.
