Statement of Student Responsibility

You and the University share responsibility for your education. Our most successful students recognize the responsibility they must assume for their own progress. At UC Berkeley, you have the freedom to make independent decisions about your academic career. With this freedom comes the need to be responsible not only about your academics, but also about the administrative duties you need to complete in order to graduate.

I'd like to get into the financial world and eventually move to working for the Ministry of Finance back in Kenya.
