Time Allowed for Degree Completion
Because space on campus has limits, the University must graduate students in order to make room for newly admitted students. All UC campuses therefore have limits on how much time undergraduate students have to complete their degrees. UC Berkeley’s College of Letters and Science (L&S) has one of the more liberal time limits on campus. This page will walk you through understanding how much time you have to finish your degree.
