About the Program
The Berkeley Pre-College Scholars: Summer Residential track offers international and domestic high school students the opportunity to live on campus and enjoy the summer at Berkeley. Pre-College Scholars participants will get the opportunity to earn college credit while experiencing university life to the fullest with other students from across the United States and around the world. During the summer, students will take two courses offered through Berkeley Summer Sessions and have the option to participate in extracurricular activities, excursions, and an exploratory workshop series delivered by skilled admissions professionals.
Your summer residential experience begins with orientation sessions, an interactive campus tour, and opportunities to meet with program staff and other participants. Activities and excursions are planned by UC Berkeley undergraduate Resident Assistants and Mentors (RAMs) and the program staff to help you meet other students in your program, make the most out of your time at Berkeley, and prepare for your future college experience.
Find courses to meet and challenge your desire to learn. Whether looking for the next set of courses beyond your high school offerings, exploring a possible college major, or seeking to try courses in an area of special interest, you can find it at Berkeley in the summer! Learn from and with the best, and our staff will work with you every step of the way.
