Other Types of Students
Take advantage of open enrollment at one of the world's great universities. During the summer, UC Berkeley's academic program is open to adults, high school graduates, community residents, and anyone else in the group we call "independent." About 1,000 of the nearly 16,000 summer students fall into this category.
Take a course for personal enrichment. Prepare for a future degree program. Advance your job options. Whatever reason you choose, you enrich the classroom environment with your viewpoints and experience. All we ask is that you be committed to a serious course of study.
You can benefit from UC Berkeley's academic riches. Make the most of your employment at one of the world's finest universities by enrolling in a summer class. Take a course that interests you. Explore a new field. Expand your job options. You can even take a PE course in Yoga, Conditioning, or Tennis.
To make it easier for you to do that, Summer Sessions offers a staff discount, which reduces the summer fee by $335. Eligible staff pay only the course fee for the selected class, and do not pay the $335 registration fee.
Current career, full-time casual, or partial year employees at any UC campus, lab, or the Office of the President are eligible. Long-term (appointments longer than 6 months) temporary staff are also eligible. You will need the approval of your immediate supervisor, who certifies your eligibility.
- If you cancel or withdraw from Berkeley Summer Sessions prior to the "Cancel Registration" deadline or "Drop or Withdraw for Refund" deadline you will be refunded all but the $100 non-refundable fee. If you withdraw after the "Drop or Withdraw for Refund", you will receive no refund.
-Employees who are also matriculated students are not eligible.
The program formerly known as the Senior Audit Program through UC Berkeley Summer Sessions has become a benefit of membership in the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute, at UC Berkeley (OLLI @Berkeley).
Those 50 years of age and older will be able to audit almost any Summer Sessions course (with available seats) at the discretion of the instructor with an OLLI @Berkeley summer or annual membership. Exceptions are language courses, lab science courses, and courses with limited enrollment. Each course instructor determines the level of participation required, but it is assumed that auditors will not submit papers, take exams, or be evaluated for a grade.
Older adults are well known to be excellent students in higher education; because they are generally not working for a degree and have the reputation of being pure scholars. By becoming a member of OLLI @Berkeley you can join a community of lifelong learners who are both auditing classes on campus and participating in OLLI programming specifically geared to older adults.
Are you currently teaching fulltime in grades K-12 in California? If so, we are offering you the chance to take up to 8 units at UC Berkeley Summer Sessions at a great rate.
This is your chance to catch up, brush up, earn valuable CEUs, or break new ground. We offer more than 500 courses in 80 academic disciplines in five different sessions, beginning in late May and ending in mid-August http://summer.berkeley.edu/registration/schedule. The program is open to fulltime K-12 teachers in any public, private, or charter school in California. School staff and administrators, those employed as substitute teachers, part-time teachers, or those matriculated in any University of California degree program are not eligible.
Teachers are invited to attend Berkeley Summer Sessions by paying the enrollment fee of $335 plus the one-time only $50.00 Document Management Fee. A Summer Sessions grant pays the balance of course fees for up to two courses which may combine for no more than eight units. To apply, choose a course http://schedule.berkeley.edu, complete and submit the enrollment form (below), along with proof of full-time employment and the $335 enrollment fee plus the one-time only $50.00 Document Management Fee. We will notify you by e-mail of your participation in the program. Space is limited, and the program will fill on a first come, first-served basis.
To maintain your fee grant, you must complete the courses with a grade of D- or better (Incomplete grades or no grade is not acceptable). If the courses are not completed with a passing grade or better, the fee grant will be removed and collection proceedings will begin. Should you cancel your registration (drop all courses before the start of your first session) $100 of the enrollment fee is non-refundable. If you withdraw from Summer Sessions (drop all courses during the first week of your first course), the enrollment fee will not be refunded. If you withdraw from all courses after the first week of your first course, you will be responsible for all course fees for all courses in which you registered.
