The Jumpstart Program

Jumpstart is an optional program for students who have been accepted to Berkeley, but need to develop their skills for college readiness. The program, which is available every term, is designed to allow high school seniors and adult students to meet their college skills reading, writing, and math requirements, at no additional cost, in the term prior to their matriculation at Berkeley.

Students who need to meet their college skills requirements as part of their academic program and choose not to enroll in Jumpstart will be required to complete college skills classes or practicums at the regular tuition rate during their first academic year.
