Additional Planning Information
To assist you with the planning process, please review the following websites and forms. There are several ways to review information for each major.
Here is where you will find detailed information on your major including a semester-by-semester academic plan for how faculty suggest your complete your degree requirements.
Each department's website has information regarding their requirements, usually found in a section called Undergraduate or Degree Programs.
You can request a "what-if" Degree Audit Report (DARS) for your intended major in Engineering. The DARS link is on bearfacts.berkeley.edu. It will show you which requirements you have completed for the specific engineering major, and what's still left to complete.
A semester by semester enrollment plan will help you organize how to complete the major requirements and the time it will take to graduate. A similar plan will be part of your change of college packet.
A handout is also available in 230 Bechtel.
