Admissions for UC Berkeley Students

Continuing UC Berkeley students may apply only once to the Haas Undergraduate Program. In order for an application to be considered, applicants must meet the minimum eligibility requirements outlined below.


Students admitted as junior transfers to UC Berkeley's College of Letters & Science or other majors are NOT eligible to apply to the Haas Undergraduate Program. In addition, we cannot review applications from students who have already earned a bachelor's degree.

Minimum Eligibility Requirements

-Haas no longer requires foreign language
-A score of 3, 4 or 5 on the Math AB AP Exam fulfills 16A or 1A
-A score of 3, 4 or 5 on the Math BC AP Exam fulfills 16A or 1A
-A score of 4 or 5 on the Micro and Macro AP Exams fulfills the Economics prerequisite

UC Berkeley students preparing to apply for the business major must satisfy the following major-specific requirements for the Haas Undergraduate Program:

Prerequisites: All prerequisites for letter grades
Units: Completion of at least 60 semester (90 quarter) units

All courses required for admission must be completed by the end of the Spring semester prior to starting at the Haas School of Business.

Breadth Requirements

You must successfully complete the 7-course breadth sequence to earn a B.S. degree from the Haas School. Although breadth coursework is not required for admission, students are encouraged to spread breadth courses over 4 years. One course cannot be used to satisfy both a prerequisite and a breadth requirement for the business administration major.

Exam & Transfer Credit

Students with credit from AP, IB and A Level exams should review the exam credit page to determine how it may be applied to program requirements. Students who have taken college coursework from accredited schools prior to enrollment at UC Berkeley may fulfill requirements with UC-transferable courses that fit the Haas prerequisite, breadth and foreign language guidelines. Most academic courses are UC-transferable if comparable to courses offered at UC. Vocational and personal enrichment classes do not qualify.
