UC Irvine in US News and World Report 2018 Rankings

UC Irvine has scored a 9th (tie) ranking nationally among Public Universities in the 2018 US News & World Report rankings.  It is 42nd (tie) among National Universities.

UC Irvine has 27,331 undergraduates, and 32,754 total students.  Its in-state tuition and fees are $15,516, its out-of-state tuition and fees are $43,530, and room and board are $14,829.
