$15/hr or academic credit.


Students who do not meet the terms of academic probation may be dismissed from the College. This is not necessarily the end of a student's academic career at UC Berkeley. Many strong students have been dismissed and have been able to return and graduate from Berkeley. In order to resume studies at Berkeley, students will need to be readmitted by the Deans' Conference.

Transfer Coursework

General Guidelines

In many cases, it is possible to satisfy unit or course curriculum requirements with course work from other campuses. Be sure to check with the office responsible for the requirement to seek transfer credit approval before enrolling elsewhere. Additional general information on transfer credit is available on the Office of the Registrar website.

L&S Peer Advising

Peer Advising Hours 2018-2019 

AskLnS Peers is a program designed to provide drop-in advising for students in the College of Letters & Science. Peers offer advising at different locations around campus. In the evenings, you can find them in the residence halls during Fall and Spring semesters. There is no appointment required, so feel free to drop-in any time!

Peer Advisers


Students who have a strong interest in an area of study outside their major often decide to complete a minor program. For a list of L&S minors, refer to the Berkeley Academic Guide or visit the appropriate academic department.

Requirements vary by minor. For more information, consult with the undergraduate major adviser (UMA) in the department offering the minor.
