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. 

Enrolling

You are responsible for reviewing enrollment policies and ensuring the accuracy of your enrollments.  Review this page and the Berkeley Guide Academic Policies.  Your instructors, academic advisers, and the Office of the Registrar cannot enroll on your behalf.

Transfer Student FAQs

What is the College of Letters & Science?
The College of Letters & Science (L&S) is UC Berkeley’s liberal arts college and is the largest of the university’s schools and colleges. It is also known as "the College".  L&S offers over 80 majors in Arts & Humanities, Biological Science, Physical Science, Social Science, and Interdisciplinary Studies. Earning a degree in the liberal arts provides you with a rich and varied educational experience and allows you to explore fields of knowledge beyond your major.

Change of College into L&S

Interested in a change of college to Letters & Science?  Please attend a workshop if you have questions. Plan to arrive on time for the workshops as there is no late admittance. The workshop schedule can be found on the advising calendar. Upcoming workshops are listed in the table below.

Note: Advising appointments are no longer required prior to submitting your Change of College petition.

Dismissal

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.

Peer Adviser

Year and Major(s): 4th year, MCB major

About Me: Hello there! I am a fourth year Molecular and Cell Biology major with a
minor in Arabic. I enjoy studying Biology, particularly physiology and how the body
responds to external stressors.

I know at times you are inundated with academic stresses, but peer advisors are
here to help make the navigation process less daunting! If you ever find yourself
thinking an academic predicament is unassailable, stop by and ask questions!
Looking forward to meeting you.

a bachelor's degree in sociology and I hope to get a master in Counseling.

Favorite Thing about Peer Advising: That I get to help students be better informed
about the options available to them (sometimes by giving them information that
they might not have been aware of).
