At the time of admission to the Haas Undergraduate Program, all students sign a Statement of Acceptance that includes an agreement to enroll full-time each semester and to graduate by the date listed (no more than two Academic Years after admission to the major). All Haas students are required to do so.
If you wish to leave campus in order to study abroad, please see Global Opportunities.
Students that have been suspended from the Haas School and the University because of a Student Conduct case will receive no credit towards their degree for course work taken outside of Berkeley during the period of suspension.
The following information does NOT apply to students interested in international study.
Cancellation of Registration/Withdrawal
If at some point you feel it is necessary to cancel your registration for the upcoming semester, we require that you notify our office in writing with a detailed explanation of why you cannot attend, along with supporting documentation, if applicable, before you cancel your registration. This does not apply to students that will be studying abroad through a non-EAP Program. If you have already enrolled in classes at Berkeley for the semester in which you wish to be off campus, you must cancel your registration through Tele-BEARS (http://registrar.berkeley.edu/canwd.html) . This can only be done prior to the first day of instruction for the semester.
Once the semester has begun, if a student wishes to withdraw, we require that you submit a Petition (.pdf) explaining the reason for the withdrawal, along with supporting documentation, if applicable. If a student is allowed to withdraw, readmission is not guaranteed. If readmission is approved, the semester of readmission will be determined by the Haas Undergraduate Program Office. In addition, readmission does not guarantee a change in the date of graduation listed on your Statement of Acceptance.
If you later decide that you would like to apply for readmission to the major and UC Berkeley, you will need to complete the Application for Readmission and Statement of Legal Residence. Download the forms from the web at:
Pay the appropriate fee at the Cashier’s Office and bring the form to the Haas Undergraduate Program Office in S450 for processing. Attach a Petition, and any applicable documentation, explaining your reasons for requesting readmission, outlining how your situation has changed, and showing that you are ready to return to school full-time.
Students are expected to comply with the date of graduation on the Statement of Acceptance. If that would not be possible, the Petition (Acrobat PDF) must also include a request to change the date of graduation.
Business Administration majors who have been out of the undergraduate program for five years or more without completing degree requirements will be required to complete the requirements in effect at the time of their request for readmission to the University.
Students who have withdrawn from the Haas Undergraduate Program and UC Berkeley and have earned a bachelor’s degree, regardless of the discipline, while away from the Haas Undergraduate Program and UC Berkeley will not be eligible for readmission to Haas.
