Berkeley’s programs are designed to prepare students for a career.

Developed and updated regularly to incorporate the skills employers demand, Berkeley’s programs combine excellent academics with hands-on learning.

Scholarships and financial aid are available.

Students who have earned an Associate's degree from a community college in the United States may be eligible for the Transfer Opportunity Scholars Program (T.O.P. Scholars) from Berkeley College. Scholarships are renewable based on GPA and may be up to 50 percent of the tuition at Berkeley College.* Eligibility requirements apply. Additional scholarships and forms of financial aid are available to those who qualify.

Transferring credits is easy.

Berkeley College frequently accepts transfer credits from regionally accredited post-secondary institutions. For a course to be considered for transfer credit, its content must be comparable to that of a course in the student’s Berkeley program and the student must have received a minimum grade of C for the course. Students may also be eligible for Credit for Prior Learning. The decision to offer transfer credit or credit for prior learning is within the sole discretion of Berkeley College.

Berkeley professors bring firsthand knowledge and know-how to the classroom.

Many Berkeley instructors have extensive professional experience in the subjects they teach, having worked at leading companies and organizations. Some have run their own firms.

Help is always available to students.

Centers for Academic Success at each Berkeley campus and online offer comprehensive support resources and services, including tutoring at no additional charge. Counseling and other support services are also available to address the educational and personal needs of students.

Students get practical experience.

All Berkeley programs require a faculty-monitored internship, practicum, or job-related assignment where students apply what they’ve learned in the classroom. This real-world experience can provide an advantage in the competitive professional world.

Berkeley students receive career assistance.

A team of more than 30 Berkeley Career Services professionals assist Berkeley students with resume and interview preparation, help identify career opportunities, and maintain an extensive network of employer contacts.
