Education Abroad Program
EAP offers the highest quality study abroad experiences tailored to meet the needs and interests of UC students. Participants stay registered at UC while abroad, continue to earn credit and make usual progress towards their degrees, and pay the same fees they would pay if they remained on their home campuses. For more information, visit the UC EAP website or the Berkeley EAP site.
Evening MBA program
The Evening & Weekend MBA Program at the Haas School of Business offers working professionals access to one of the finest management educations in the world. For more information about this program, go to the Haas School of Business website.
The Exchange Scholar Program is designed to enable doctoral students with superior academic records to study at one of the participating institutions to take advantage of educational opportunities that are not available at Berkeley. Students are normally eligible to become an exchange scholar only after having completed one year in a Berkeley graduate degree program.
Students may take courses or conduct research with particular faculty at the host institution for no more than one year while remaining registered at Berkeley.
Participating institutions are Brown, Columbia, Cornell, Harvard, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Princeton, Stanford, UC Berkeley, University of Chicago, University of Pennsylvania, and Yale.
Intercampus Visitor Program
The Intercampus Visitor Program allows undergraduates enrolled on one UC campus to apply to another as an intercampus visitor for one term. Permission to participate in this program is granted on a very limited basis and only for valid academic reasons. Complete this application and carefully follow the instructions provided. You may direct your questions to Michael Cooper in the Office of the Registrar at firstname.lastname@example.org or 510-642-1592.
Intercampus Exchange Program
A graduate student registered on any campus of the University of California may go to another campus of the University as an Intercampus Exchange Graduate Student with the approval of:
the student's graduate advisor
the chair of the department on the host campus
the deans of the Graduate Division on the home and the host campus
This privilege is available to graduate students who would like to associate with scholars or fields of study not available on the home campus, or who seek the use of special facilities and collections. Click here to go to the program website.
International Students (EAP Reciprocity Program)
International students come to UC Berkeley for one or two semesters as part of the University of California's Education Abroad Program (EAP). EAP is a set of reciprocal exchanges between the University of California and its partner institutions abroad. Undergraduate and graduate reciprocity students are nominated by the partner universities under the provisions of specific contractual agreements, and attend a UC campus for up to one academic year on a no-fee-exchange, non-degree basis. For more information on UC's Reciprocal Exchanges, visit the EAP systemwide website.
Simultaneous Enrollment Program
This program enables UC undergraduates to enroll in one course per term offered by another UC campus. There are no additional fees for this program, but students must be fully registered and in good standing at their home UC campus in order to participate. Applications for the program are provided and processed by the student’s home UC campus. Questions about this process should be directed to the University Registrar at your home UC campus.
UC Berkeley students should complete this application and carefully follow the instructions provided. Applications are also available at the Office of the Registrar in 201 Sproul Hall. UC Berkeley students should direct their questions to Michael Cooper at email@example.com or 510-642-1592.
Veterans and dependents of veterans
The Veteran Services staff in the Office of the Registrar acts as a liaison between the Department of Veterans Affairs and students who, as veterans, veterans’ dependents, or reservists, receive education benefits. The staff also assists with the California Department of Veterans Affairs’ college fee-waiver program for children of veterans who have service-connected disabilities or who have died from service-related causes. Students who are California residents apply for the college fee-waiver program through their home county Veterans Services Office.
Students who are veterans or veterans’ dependents should contact Veteran Services as soon as they receive notification of admission to UC Berkeley to ensure timely processing of their benefit claims.
The Transfer, Re-entry, and Student Parent (TRSP) Center functions as the student services hub for veterans on the Berkeley campus. Serving those who served, TRSP work to connect prospective, new, and continuing Cal student veterans to our campus-wide network of advocates to enrich the Berkeley experience. For more information about the TRSP center, visit their website.
