Historically the fees for the Evening & Weekend MBA program have increased annually at approximately 2%. However, the approved fee increase for 2020-21 was reversed and the program fees continued at the 2019-20 rate of $3,464 per unit.
Increase to Fees
For 2021-22, the University has approved an increase of 2%, which will go into effect in fall 2021 and result in a rate of $3,533 per unit. This increase applies to the incoming class of 2024; for current students, we will offset this increase as explained below.
Haas Fee Increase Offsets (HFIOs)
To provide transparency and predictability for current students, Berkeley Haas is committed to making current student program fees constant for the 2021-22 academic year. So while program fees charged in CalCentral will increase, Berkeley Haas will offset these increases with gift aid awards, referred to as Haas Fee Increase Offsets (HFIOs).
Amounts and Visual Examples
A 2% increase ($69/unit) will go into effect for the Fall 2021 semester. HFIOs will be added to a student’s CalCentral account following the end of the Drop Only round for each Semester. HFIOs will be applied for all continuing students for the Fall 2021 and or Spring 2022 based on the number of units enrolled. Below is the formula used to determine the HFIO for each term and a chart showing HFIOs for a variety of scenarios:
Formula: Number of Units/Term X $69 = HFIO

Eligibility & Policies
- HFIOs will not be applicable to the Class of 2024
- If a current student takes a leave of absence for any reason, the effective per-unit costs will be that of the year the individual returns/continues.
- HFIOs are a form of financial aid, and in accordance with State law, we can only provide financial aid to students who are able to verify either citizenship, permanent residency, or otherwise lawful presence in the United States, except under certain other exceptional circumstances. Students who may be impacted are encouraged to speak with the Haas Financial Aid Office about those exceptions.
- There may be other case-by-case determinations about eligibility based on unusual or unanticipated situations, and Berkeley Haas will make those determinations as needed based on applicable policy and law.
