During Application


After You Apply

Applications are reviewed as they are received. All applicants must submit a completed application before they are considered for participation in the program. Please contact precollege@berkeley.edu if you have questions regarding the application and admission process.

Once your application has been processed, you will receive email notification of a change in your application status. When you log in to the application system, you should see your offer of admission to the Pre-College Scholars Residential Program. You are required to confirm your admission to the program within 48 hours of the notification being sent to you. After you accept your offer of admission for the program, you will have 48 hours to complete and submit the Course Enrollment Request Form. You will be enrolled in courses based on this form as long as there are no scheduling conflicts, and the courses are available. Please note your course selections may take some time to process, and the Course Enrollment Request Form will be the only time you can make a change to your selected session (C or D).

Once you confirm your admission, you will have seven calendar days to pay all program fees in full.

Pre-College Scholars are not permitted to enroll in online courses or courses offered outside of session C and D.

Pre-College Scholars may enroll in courses that are numbered between 1 and 99 (undergraduate, lower division), after making sure that all course prerequisites have been met. This information can be found in the catalog description of the course in the Berkeley Academic Guide. Pre-College Scholars will not be permitted to enroll in upper-division coursework under any circumstances.

Cancellation Deadline: Friday, April 10, 2020

All fees will be non-refundable should a student withdraw from the program after this deadline.
