Before You Apply

How to Apply

  • Application opens in February. Visit the application page and follow the submission instructions. All non-UC visiting students will be required to pay a non-refundable $25 Application Fee.
  • Once your application is processed, you will be sent an email with instructions on how to create your UC Berkeley login (CalNet ID). Please allow 2-3 days to receive email instructions.
  • Log in to CalCentral and complete all required tasks, including UC COVID-19 Vaccine Requirement. Certain tasks will be required prior to enrollment.
  • In CalCentral, enroll in classes and pay the total amount due (look for “Tasks” list in CalCentral dashboard). Once you've paid for your classes, you will be confirmed as a Summer Sessions student.
  • Set up email forwarding from your account to an email address you check regularly to ensure you do not miss important communication from UC Berkeley, such as notices regarding housing, billing, or enrollment activity.
