Registering at Berkeley consists of two steps:

  1. Enrolling in classes.
  2. Paying your bill. (Note: You need to pay at least 20% of your bill by the Friday before instruction begins or you will be dropped from your courses. For more information, read the Cancel for Non Payment Policy.) You may view what tuition and fees you owe within the My Finances section of CalCentral.

Official Registration
