I am an International Student, do I receive an exemption for the American History and Institutions requirement?”

Per Berkeley Academic Senate policy, if you have completed 90.5 units, have a nonimmigrant visa status (most commonly F-1) as verified by the University, and maintain that visa status through the end of your Expected Graduation Term (EGT), you are exempt from the American History and Institutions requirement.

There is an error in my Academic Progress Report (APR), how do I get this fixed?

The APR is a report used by multiple levels of the University responsible for assigning the requirements you need to complete to earn your Bachelor’s degree. Consequently, the first step is to take a look at the heading above where the error appears in the APR to identify the unit responsible for assigning the requirement(s). These headings appear in a grey box, are written in all caps, and have an arrow to the left that you can use to expand or collapse the requirements assigned by that unit.

I don’t have a link to the ‘Academic Progress Report (APR).’ How do I access the report?

The APR is a relatively new tool to Berkeley and is being launched college by college. Currently, it is available to L&S, Engineering and Environmental Design students. It will be launched for Business, Chemistry, and Natural Resources students by spring 2020.

Is there a way for me to verify that my exams and/or transfer course work has been reviewed and posted?

There are two reports (‘Exam Results’ and ‘Transfer Credit Report’) you can use to review scores and transfer credit. They are both available under My Academics in CalCentral. 

 

Exam Results - displays scores for SAT, ACT, AP, IB, A-levels, AWPE, as well as L&S exams for Foreign Language and Quantitative Reasoning.

 

Transfer Credit Report - displays exams and courses awarded for transfer credit.

 

Please note:

I am an international student and can only request one copy of an official transcript. Is it possible to get the transcript back after the transfer credit has been posted?

Yes. If you are delivering the document by hand, be sure to inform the Cal Student Central adviser of your wish to have the transcript returned after processing. The CSC adviser will attach a note to the document to notify the scanning department, and open a CSC case so that the request can be tracked until resolution. 

 

How long does it take to post transfer credit once the campus has received my transcript?

For continuing students who submit transfer credit during their Berkeley career, they should expect posting of credit within 2-4 weeks once the transcript has arrived to Berkeley, and is scanned in our student system.

 

If you are a continuing student with a current Expected Graduation Term (EGT), or with an EGT for the immediate term following, you can expect transfer credit to be posted within 1-2 business days of receipt and scanning.
