Bear Facts is on-line at http://bearfacts.berkeley.edu/.
At the time of admission to the Haas Undergraduate Program, all students sign a Statement of Acceptance that includes an agreement to enroll full-time each semester and to graduate by the date listed (no more than two Academic Years after admission to the major). All Haas students are required to do so.
If you wish to leave campus in order to study abroad, please see International Study.
Students that have been suspended from the Haas School and the University because of a Student Conduct case will receive no credit towards their degree for course work taken outside of Berkeley during the period of suspension.
The following information does NOT apply to students interested in international study.
If at some point you feel it is necessary to cancel your registration for the upcoming semester, we require that you notify our office in writing with a detailed explanation of why you cannot attend, along with supporting documentation, if applicable, before you cancel your registration. This does not apply to students that will be studying abroad through a non-EAP Program. If you have already enrolled in classes at Berkeley for the semester in which you wish to be off campus, you must cancel your registration through Tele-BEARS (http://registrar.berkeley.edu/canwd.html) . This can only be done prior to the first day of instruction for the semester.
Once the semester has begun, if a student wishes to withdraw, we require that you submit a Petition (.pdf) explaining the reason for the withdrawal, along with supporting documentation, if applicable. If a student is allowed to withdraw, readmission is not guaranteed. If readmission is approved, the semester of readmission will be determined by the Haas Undergraduate Program Office. In addition, readmission does not guarantee a change in the date of graduation listed on your Statement of Acceptance.
If you later decide that you would like to apply for readmission
to the major and UC Berkeley, you will need to complete the
Application for Readmission and Statement of Legal Residence.
Download the forms from the web at:
Pay the appropriate fee at the Cashier's Office and bring the form to the Haas Undergraduate Program Office in S450 for processing. Attach a Petition, and any applicable documentation, explaining your reasons for requesting readmission, outlining how your situation has changed, and showing that you are ready to return to school full-time.
Students are expected to comply with the date of graduation on the Statement of Acceptance. If that would not be possible, the Petition (Acrobat PDF) must also include a request to change the date of graduation.
Business Administration majors who have been out of the undergraduate program for five years or more without completing degree requirements will be required to complete the requirements in effect at the time of their request for readmission to the University.
Students who have withdrawn from the Haas Undergraduate Program and UC Berkeley and have earned a bachelor's degree, regardless of the discipline, while away from the Haas Undergraduate Program and UC Berkeley will not be eligible for readmission to Haas.
Please also expand and review the "Statement of Acceptance" paragraph located lower on this page.
As a lifelong member of the Haas School of Business community, I uphold its four Defining Leadership Principles, and act with honesty, integrity, and respect for all.
This code was created and adopted by the Haas School of Business Student Association and the Undergraduate Presidents of Student Clubs and Fraternities at the Haas School of Business – Spring 2014.
Violations of the code will be referred to the University of California, Berkeley's Center for Student Conduct and Community Standards.
As a member of the UC Berkeley community, I act with honesty, integrity, and respect for others.
At the time of admission to the business major, all students sign a Statement of Acceptance. This includes an agreement to enroll in 13 units each semester (with the possible exception of the semester of graduation) and to graduate by the date listed (no more than two Academic Years after admission to the major). All Haas students are required to do so. Please note that Haas does not have a unit maximum. Students may complete as many courses as they want, as long as they graduate no more than two Academic Years after admission to the business administration major.
Students scheduled to graduate in a spring term may extend their date of graduation through summer if they wish.
Students who go abroad during their final year at Haas may have to be taken off the Spring degree list and added to the Summer or Fall degree list, depending on when the international transcript is received. This would not entitle a student to enroll in classes at UC Berkeley during the Fall semester. Students completing Simultaneous Degrees, please note that this would affect your date of graduation from both majors. However, their degree(s) will be backdated to the semester that they studied abroad. Please note, if the student is completing a Simultaneous Degree with the College of Engineering or Natural Resources, their degree will not be back dated as those Colleges do not allow for this. Students whose degrees have been finalized and are eligible for Honors at Graduation after their EAP work has been posted to their transcripts, will be responsible for paying for a new diploma from the Office of the Registrar.
Undergraduate Business Majors that have been away from the University for more than five years without completing their degree are required to complete the degree requirements in effect at the time they return.
Please also expand and review "Statement of Acceptance" and "Minimum Units Per Semester" paragraphs below.
Students may put themselves on and take themselves off the degree list through Tele-BEARS up to the first day of instruction for a semester.
After instruction has begun students must submit the “Bachelor Degree Candidate Form” to the Haas Undergraduate Program Office. During the 4th and 5th week of classes students must also submit a $5.00 check made payable to “U.C. Regents” along with the form.
The deadline to have your name placed on the Fall or Spring degree list is the end of the 5th week of classes.
The deadline to have your name placed on the Summer degree list is June 30th.
The deadline to have your name removed from the degree list is
the last day of instruction for the semester. Students must e-mail Barbara Felkins (email@example.com) to have their name removed from the degree list.
The deadline to switch a student’s name from one semester to another in the Spring Commencement Program is April 1st .
E-mail is the primary means of communication within the Undergraduate
Program and students are expected to use e-mail frequently and
appropriately. All Haas students are required to establish and
maintain a CalMail
In addition, newly admitted transfer students must update their e-mail address on BearFacts by July 15th.
Students who do not provide this information will not receive the Advisor Code (AC) needed to register for the following semester.
The Undergraduate Alias is a mailing list of all Haas majors' e-mail addresses. It is the primary means by which the Undergraduate Program Office can relay important information directly to you.
Business majors may complete non-business courses and business electives at another institution outside of UC Berkeley. The courses may be taken:
The courses must be verified as UC-transferable by the advisors in the Office of Undergraduate Admission in 110 Sproul Hall. In addition, students who wish to receive upper division credit for the work completed off-campus must support their request with documentation about the school's numbering system. All business electives must be upper division, cover material not covered in the core classes, and completed for letter grades. Please have the final transcript sent to:
Haas Undergraduate Program
Student Services Officer
S450 Student Services Building # 1900
Berkeley, CA 94720-1900
In addition, Haas students can take courses at another UC campus during the academic year if they receive approval from the Undergraduate Program Office to withdraw from Haas for the appropriate semester(s). If a student receives approval to withdraw, the date of graduation will remain unchanged.
Please also expand and review the "Minimum Units Per Semester" paragraph located lower on this page.
When considering the courses to be selected each semester, business majors should take into account business course requirements, upper division non-business units needed, remaining breadth requirements, University requirements, and necessary prerequisites for courses to be taken in future semesters. Courses must be chosen to avoid conflicting class times or final examination groups. Please see Requirements for the BS Degree (.pdf). Responsibility for completion of requirements for the degree always rests with the individual student.
No more than 1/3 of your total UC Berkeley units may be taken P/NP (including physical education courses).
No more than 4 units of 97, 98, 197, 198, or 199 may be taken per semester.
No more than 16 units total of 98, 198, or 199 may be used for degree requirements.
No more than 4 units of Physical Education courses can be used for degree requirements.
Students should consult a current Schedule of Classes and their registration packets for complete Tele-BEARS instructions and information regarding enrollment and registration procedures (including payment of fees and assessment of late fees). Business majors must sign up for UGBA courses before the end of Phase II or risk losing priority access to the classes.
Undergraduate students may not enroll in Haas MBA courses.
Business majors must obtain an Advisor Code from the Undergraduate Office the week before Phase I of Tele-BEARS begins each semester. Under certain circumstances the Undergraduate Program Office will not release the Advisor Code. For example, if the student has not:
An incomplete grade may be assigned only if the student is doing passing work, but is unable to complete the course due to circumstances beyond his or her control. Arrangements for removal of the Incomplete must be made with the Instructor of the course prior to assigning the I grade.
An Incomplete grade received in Fall must be replaced by the first day of instruction in the following Fall.
An Incomplete grade received in Spring or Summer must be replaced by the first day of instruction in the following Spring.
When the course has been completed, the student must obtain the Petition to Remove an Incomplete Grade from the Office of the Registrar and pay the appropriate fee at the Cashier's Office. The student must then submit the petition to the department in which the course was offered. The department will obtain the grade and instructor's signature, and then return the petition to the Office of the Registrar for posting.
Please review the web page here.
Students with outstanding academic records may qualify for graduation with Honors, High Honors, or Highest Honors in Business Administration. To be eligible, the candidate must meet the following criteria:
Please also review "How to Calculate Your Business/Major GPA" paragraph below.
Candidates meeting these criteria will have the appropriate notation appear on their diplomas and on their Berkeley transcripts after they graduate.
|Overall GPA||Business GPA|
At least 43 units must be completed at UC Berkeley (or while on EAP) for letter grades.
To calculate your Business/Major GPA, you add
up the grade points for all your letter graded upper division
Business courses. You then divide the total grade points by the
total units for those courses. This includes any upper division
Business courses taken outside of Berkeley. Courses that are not
included are those from other Departments (e.g. Economics) that
were used to satisfy Haas core courses.
To determine grade points, multiply the value of the grade (as listed below) by the number of units.
A+ = 4.0
A = 4.0
A- = 3.7
B+ = 3.3
B = 3.0
B- = 2.7
C+ = 2.3
C = 2.0
D+ = 1.3
D = 1.0
D- = 0.7
F = 0.0
|Course (Units)||Grade||Grade Points|
|UGBA 100 (2u)||B+ (3.3)||6.6|
|UGBA 101A (3u)||A- (3.7)||11.1|
41.7 grade points divided by 12 units = 3.475.
At the time of admission to the Haas Undergraduate Program, all students sign a Statement of Acceptance that includes an agreement to enroll in at least 13 units each semester and to graduate no more than two Academic Years after admission to the major. All Haas students are required to do so.
Students are required to enroll in a minimum of 13 units each semester. However, graduating seniors may take fewer than 13 units in their final term, as long as all graduation requirements are met. Students receiving Financial Aid or other support / discounts / benefits, etc. that are contingent upon full-time enrollment should check with the appropriate agency to determine the minimum number of units required. Be advised that if you are not in the required number of units, you may be asked to return a substantial portion of your aid. In addition, international students must comply with the requirements of their student visa.
Students scheduled to graduate in a spring term may extend their date of graduation through summer if they wish.
All Haas Undergraduates must maintain normal progress towards the bachelor of science degree each semester in the major. Normal degree progress is defined as:
Students will be placed on academic probation if their UC Berkeley cumulative GPA is less than 2.00. Students on probation are allowed to return to the Undergraduate Program for the following semester. However, they must enroll in a minimum of 13 units and cannot take any courses P/NP--all courses must be taken for letter grades. If, at the end of the semester, the UC Berkeley cumulative GPA is 2.00 or higher, they will be removed from academic probation.
Students will be subject to dismissal from the Haas School and the University on any of the following conditions:
