How to Plan Ahead for your EGT
Before you enroll in classes at Berkeley for your EGT semester, it is essential that you check to make sure that classes you have chosen will satisfy any remaining degree requirements.
- For University, Campus and College requirements, review your Academic Progress Report to confirm completion of requirements by or during your EGT semester.
- Consult your Undergraduate Major/Minor Adviser to confirm completion of major and minor requirements.
- (Optional) Attend a graduation workshop. Powerpoint slides here.
You should consider other factors addressed in the table below that may require an adjustment to your EGT. The following table pertains to students who have not been dismissed. If you currently have dismissal status, please see our Dismissal page.
|If you are uncertain about the completion of any of your requirements as you enter your final year and EGT||Make an appointment with an L&S College Adviser before finalizing your planned schedule. Once enrollment appointments are are announced for your EGT semester, you will be blocked from enrollment at Berkeley for any term beyond your EGT. Therefore it is important to schedule an appointment early on to go over your plan and discuss eligibility for moving your EGT to a later term if that is necessary. Complete a Four Program Plan Worskheet in advance of your appointment (signed by a major adviser if you are declared), and bring it along with any other pertinent documentation (e.g. confirmation of acceptance to UCEAP, documentation from DSP for reduced course load, etc). While your current EGT remains active, you will not be able to enroll in future terms beyond your assigned EGT. Please be sure to plan ahead as scheduling an advising appointment in L&S can require several weeks notice.|

Send your notification to email@example.com, include your name, ID and the requested EGT term. Review the deadlines posted to the right (if you plan to graduate in 2017-2018) for requesting an EGT and submitting transcripts from your transfer institution.|
|If you cancel registration or withdraw from your EGT semester (or summer term)||
If you still plan to graduate by your assigned EGT term, you must notify the L&S Office of Undergraduate Advising in order to confirm your intention to graduate even though you are canceling or withdrawing for your final term, otherwise you will not be reviewed and cleared for graduation. Send your notification to firstname.lastname@example.org, include your name, ID and confirm your assigned EGT.
If you do not plan to graduate by your assigned EGT, when you are ready to resume your studies, either at Berkeley or another institution, contact the L&S Office of Undergraduate Advising to identify and plan for a new EGT.
|If you've been away from Berkeley and don't have a current EGT, or your assigned EGT has past||
Contact the L&S Office of Undergraduate Advising and your Undergraduate Major Adviser to go over a plan to complete your requirements and determine a new EGT.
|If you plan to attend UCEAP for your EGT semester||
If you plan to attend UCEAP for your final semeser or summer, your EGT must be coordinatined with the completion of the UCEAP program so that courses and grades are posted to your record in time to review and clear you for graduation.
You may need to meet with an L&S adviser to determine your eligibilty for moving an EGT to a later semester/term.
