Physics Department Specific Enrollment Information for UC Extension - Concurrent Enrollment

If you would like to apply to enroll in physics classes via the UC Extension - Concurrent Enrollment, we are happy to consider you.  Please note the following Department-specific enrollment requirements:

1. In addition to the online Extension application, UC Berkeley Physics requires an internal online application for each course. Forms are available here.

2. Applicants must upload a transcript to the Physics Department online form so that we may verify completion of prerequisites.

We evaluate requests pending course availability. We cannot consider applications for courses that are full and/or courses that have a waitlist. Consideration will be given only for courses that have vacant seats and/or no waitlist and will begin at the end of the second week of classes to assess enrollment availability. Though we cannot guarantee enrollment, we will do our best to accommodate requests provided all requirements and approvals are met.
