Welcome to UC Berkeley's College of Letters and Science!
Congratulations on your acceptance to UC Berkeley! Being a new student can be both exciting and overwhelming. It's difficult to know what to expect and you will certainly encounter new challenges throughout your first year, whether you are entering as a freshman or a transfer student.
There is a lot more to learn beyond Golden Bear Advising and Golden Bear Orientation and it is almost guaranteed that some of what you covered in those experiences will become fuzzy. This guide is meant to highlight resources, policies, and tips that may be particularly helpful during your first semester or year.
