Please visit program websites for additional fee information.

Document Management Fee

The one-time, non-refundable Document Management Fee will be assessed for all new visiting Summer Sessions students. Visiting students who have enrolled in previous summers will not be assessed the Document Management Fee. The Document Management Fee will provide unlimited official transcripts sent first class mail or provided over the counter in person at CalCentral.

International Service Fee

The International Service Fee (ISF) is assessed to all foreign visitors coming to the US with a "non-immigrant status" to take classes  or get a degree at UC Berkeley. Therefore, students that enrolling and traveling with a valid US Passport or Permanent Resident Card will not be assessed the ISF. Students currently studying in the US on an F-1 visa who need to transfer their I-20 to UC Berkeley are also assessed the ISF. Students currently studying in the US on a F-1 visa who plan to return to their US school after the summer term ends are not assessed the ISF. For more information, please refer to the Visa Information section.

Cancellation Fee

Cancellation means you are dropping all classes in all sessions before your earliest session begins. The non-refundable cancellation fee is $100 or $400, depending on whether a Certificate of Eligibility (1-20 or DS-2019) has been issued.

  • Visiting international students will receive a refund of all fees, minus a $100 non-refundable cancellation fee, if a Certificate of Eligibility (I-20 or DS-2019) has not been issued at the time of cancellation.

  • If we have already issued a Certificate of Eligibility, you will be assessed the non-refundable $100 cancellation fee, and the International Service Fee ($300) will not be refunded.
