Students with a strong background in certain academic areas can request to take a waiver examination. Please review the Waiver Guidelines carefully to determine if a waiver examination is appropriate. You should also review past course syllabi (linked on the Waiver Guidelines website, for reference only) and any other posted materials as part of your preparation.
Fall core waiver exams for Microeconomics, Marketing, and Data & Decisions will be administered on-site at Berkeley Haas on the following days/times.
Thursday, July 18 from 6:00-9:00 PM in N270 (Chou Hall)
Saturday, July 20 from 1:00-4:00 PM in N270 (Chou Hall)
Sunday, July 21 from 9:00 AM-12:00 PM in N270 (Chou Hall)
Complete the Waiver Request Form no later than July 11 to sign up for an exam.
There will be no opportunity to take these exams at any later date, so if you think you have a chance of passing the waiver exam, we recommend that you make time to sit for it at one of the sessions listed below.
*Information on core waiver exams for spring core courses, including Macroeconomics, Financial Reporting (Accounting) and Introduction to Finance, will be provided at the end of fall semester.*
Some courses are eligible for automatic waiver. Review the Waiver Exam Policy closely.
