Berkeley Pre-College Scholars: Summer Commuter Program Checklist


Before You Apply:

1. Carefully read the Berkeley Pre-College Scholars: Summer Commuter Program page. Pay special attention to the Eligibility, Deadlines, Fees, Refund Policy, and Academic Policies sections as well as all the dates and deadlines governing the program
2. Talk to your parents about participating in the program
3. Request an official or unofficial transcript from your high school
4. Review the courses that are numbered between 1 and 99 (undergraduate, lower division) on the Course Schedule
5. Note the Course Number (the 5-digit number associated with each course) and the number of units for the courses you would like to take
6. Pick back-up classes in case the ones you want are full
7. Complete your personal insight questions. (See Application Tab for more details)
8. Sign and review all the following documents:
   Release of Authorization for Emergency Treatment form
   Consent to Release Student Information form
   Waiver of Liability and Authorization form
9. English Proficiency Requirement (if applicable):
   All students who attend high schools outside of the United States are required to provide documentation of meeting the English Language Proficiency Requirement unless their school country is exempt from the requirement, OR they will enroll only in English as a Second Language course. Proof of meeting this requirement is normally completed during the visa process for international visitors. Because you will NOT be issued an I-20 to apply for a student visa, you will need to provide this documentation during the application process.



Application opens February 18, 2020, and closes on June 22, 2020, at 11:59 PM (Pacific Time).


After You Apply:

Once your application has been processed, you will receive email notification of a change in your application status. If accepted into the program, you will receive another email communication with instructions to set up your CalNet ID and passphrase following your admission offer. When you create your CalNet ID and passphrase, you will be able to log in to the CalCentral system and enroll in courses. Keep in mind that the program fees must be paid in full in CalCentral within seven days after enrolling in classes, or you will be dropped from your classes. If you get dropped, there are no guarantees that you will be able to get back into the class especially if there is a waitlist or no seats left. To pay the program fee, you can use an e-Check, credit card, or Foreign Funds. Please plan accordingly to accommodate payment processing times, which can take several business days. If you encounter any issues with receiving your CalNet information, please contact itcsshelp@berkeley.edu.
