Currently our department is not utilizing Academic holds for our majors. We contact students studying abroad prior to Phase I registration and require them to contact the Student Services Advisor with confirmation of 1) the courses they are enrolled in while studying abroad to include course links and syllabi and 2) a proposed study list for the following semester, either for the second semester abroad or UC Berkeley registration for the returning semester. Review and approval is conducted via email exchange.
All major requirements must be completed prior to their final semester with the exception of electives.
