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.
It is tied for 16th in Best Colleges for Veterans, tied for 49th in High School Counselor Rankings, tied for 40th in Best Undergraduate Engineering Programs, and #121 in Best Value Schools (but ranked much higher on this in other rankings).
