Berkeley Summer Experience
The 2019 Application Has Closed
Join us for the 2019 Berkeley Summer Experience.
Berkeley Summer Experience is an intensive application workshop and information session that is intended to introduce prospective students to the UC application and admissions process, as well as the UC Berkeley undergraduate experience. During the program, students will learn how to present a strong application for admission, meet current students and/or alumni, and learn of the many resources and activities offered at one of the world's leading universities. Participants of Berkeley Summer Experience receive support that does not end after the program. Our admissions staff continue to support students through the application cycle to prepare students with their applications.
Goal of the Program
This year, Berkeley Summer Experience will take place on June 21-23 as a residential program on the UC Berkeley campus. The program is free of charge for students who are selected.
*Students must provide their own transportation to the program.
