Five UC Berkeley updates for both freshman and junior transfers.
Freshman Admissions Decision Date: March 25, 2021
If you have been admitted via Early Decision at another university and have accepted, please withdraw your application to UC Berkeley prior to March 1 so the admissions office can confirm the withdrawal before the March decision release. The withdrawal form is on your MAP@Berkeley portal.
Summer Program for High School Students
The Pre-College Scholars Summer Virtual Program allows continuing high school students the opportunity to earn college credit and learn with Berkeley students and visitors from around the world. Students can choose from various lower-division courses in the Humanities, Social Sciences, STEM, and more.
Test Free for the Forseeable Future
Berkeley will be test-free for the Fall 2022 admissions cycle. Current juniors considering applying to Berkeley should be aware that the campus will not require or use SAT/ACT exam scores in any part of the admissions process. This includes the holistic review, selection, and scholarship consideration.
New Community Plan in the Works
The University of California announced to the campus community a new plan for coordinating the admissions and enrollment across campus. This change will involve the realignment of several campus departments that will collectively work towards improving our ability to attract and retain students in a most strategic manner. This is so very much needed, as each campus has essentially been working as its own entity, making things both extremely confusing and potentially deal-breaking.
