Letter to High School Counselors

Dear High School Counselor or Teacher,

Your students look to you for guidance as they plan their academic futures. UC Berkeley Summer Sessions offers two special programs to help students prepare for their academic careers beyond high school.

Freshman and Transfer Edge are award-winning programs that give newly admitted freshmen and transfer students an opportunity to learn about life as a Berkeley student before the fall semester begins. By taking prerequisites early, students have more flexibility when planning their fall and spring semesters, and more opportunities to explore different majors and earn units towards graduation.

Enrolling at Berkeley in the summer allows your students to experience a smooth and beneficial transition into university life. For more information, visit the Freshman Edge or Transfer Edge pages.
