As an L&S student, you can explore the almost limitless possibilities of a liberal arts education. Dean Steven Botterill discusses the benefits of the liberal arts in this video. You will also be expected to meet high standards of student responsibility essential for success at Berkeley.
After attending orientation, meet an L&S College Adviser who can provide assistance in forming a program plan that will help you get the most out of your education.
The Passed/Not Passed (P/NP) grading option was designed to encourage students to explore new academic areas or take challenging, far-ranging courses without undue concern about grades. Passed grades require a level of performance at least equal to a letter grade of C-. Neither P nor NP grades affect the UC grade point average.
If you need a Readmission appointment, and cannot schedule an appointment with a College Adviser by the deadline, please come in to 206 Evans Hall to get the application date stamped by Nov. 1. Then schedule an appointment in the next week or two as appointments become more available. Students can mail their applications if they’re out of the area, and we will accept the Nov. 1 date stamp on the envelope.

What is your approach to advising? While my main role is to advise on degree requirements, I am equally concerned with your personal growth and development during your time at Cal. There is much more to college than the classes you take and the grades you earn. As your adviser, my goal is to provide you with the support and guidance you need to make sure you have a fulfilling college experience inside and outside the classroom.
