The Haas Study Abroad Adviser signs planning forms for business majors only. For newly admitted Haas students who are admitted into the Haas Undergraduate Program and will be going abroad the Summer prior to starting Haas: note that the Undergraduate Program Office will not be able to sign off on any planning forms for your abroad program. Students can take forms to L&S or respective department(s) for signatures.
Yes. Students need to submit a screenshot attachment (via email) of their enrollment/study list from your UCEAP or sponsoring school.
Yes. Students who go abroad during the Spring of their final year at Haas may have to be taken off the Spring degree list and added to the Summer or Fall degree list depending on when their program ends and when transcripts are received. This would not entitle a student to enroll in classes at UC Berkeley during the Fall semester. Students completing Simultaneous Degrees, this might affect their date of graduation from both majors. However, their degree(s) will be backdated to the semester that they studied abroad. Note, if a student is completing a Simultaneous Degree with the College of Engineering or Natural Resources, their degree will not be backdated as those Colleges do not allow for this. Students whose degrees have been finalized and are eligible for Honors at Graduation after their UCEAP work has been posted to their transcripts, will be responsible for paying for a new diploma from the Office of the Registrar.
