Berkeley Summer Experience

Join us for the 2022 Berkeley Summer Experience.

We are pleased to announce that our special Berkeley Summer Experience program will be in person for summer 2022. We are excited to provide a safe in-person experience for high school and community college students interested in applying to UC Berkeley for the upcoming Fall 2023 application cycle. The best part is that we’ll be coming to you!

Berkeley Summer Experience is an intensive information session and application workshop where students learn about the Berkeley admissions process, how to effectively fill out the UC application and what the Berkeley undergraduate experience is like. Students will have an opportunity to meet with admissions staff, current students or alumni. Our admissions staff will continue to support students throughout the application process.

Goal of the Program

Berkeley Summer Experience is built to serve first-generation, low-income, and/or underrepresented students. We offer strategies for crafting a competitive UC Application, while introducing them to resources designed to help students succeed on the UC Berkeley campus. While the resources we’ll connect them with during the program are Berkeley-specific, similar programs exist throughout the UC system.
