Programs have also been developed to address specific areas of student learning:
- The Berkeley College Honors Program is a selective interdisciplinary program that gives freshmen and continuing students the opportunity to study program-related topics in greater depth than is possible in the regular degree programs. Incoming freshmen students with a 3.0 High School grade point average and demonstrated academic achievement are eligible to apply. Continuing students who have earned at least 48 but no more than 120 credits and have maintained an overall cumulative 3.5 grade point average or higher may apply for acceptance into the Honors Program.
- Learning Communities are cohorts of students studying, collaborating, and learning together in linked courses during an academic term, with the intent of broadening the learning experience. Learning Communities are designed to help students build rapport among their peers and their teachers, as well as offer them an integrated learning experience.
- The Jumpstart Program is an optional pre-college program for students who have been accepted to Berkeley, but need to develop their reading, writing, and math skills. The program, which is available every quarter, is designed to allow high school seniors and adult students to take developmental reading, writing, and math courses, at no additional cost, in the quarter prior to their matriculation at Berkeley.
- The Bridge to Success Program is a required pre-college program for students with scores of 40 or below on the Math section of Accuplacer. The program is designed to hone the math, study, critical-thinking, and problem-solving skills of the students, as well as help the students build a foundation for academic success at Berkeley. No tuition or fees are required for this program.
