    Will You Be Graduating in 4 Semesters or 5?

    - Students entering UCB as transfer students are expected to graduate within four (4) semesters. 

    - Transfer students who are admitted missing 3 or more lower division requirements do NOT have to petition for an extra semester; approval is granted automatically in these situations.

    - Students participating in a study abroad program do not have to petition. Approval for one additional semester will be granted to all study abroad students. - Summer terms, or any quarter/ semester completed someplace other than UCB (including FPF) do NOT count toward the allotted semesters. 

    - In exceptional cases, if a student will be unable to complete all degree requirements within the allotted time, they can petition for an extra semester. Extra time cannot be granted to complete a minor, do research, or take elective courses. An extra semester is granted in instances where it would not be possible to complete the degree within the allotted time for some reason beyond a student's control (i.e., illness, disability, parenting responsibilities, etc.). Students who want to petition for an extra semester should meet with their ESS adviser in 230 Bechtel Engineering Center to discuss their situation.
