Education Abroad Reciprocity Students

Instructions for College of Chemistry Undergraduates (Includes Chemical Engineering, Chemistry, and Chemical Biology Majors)

Dear College of Chemistry Education Abroad Reciprocity Student,

We are pleased to welcome you to the College of Chemistry.  Please read the following information carefully.

Important References:

Schedule of Classes
Berkeley Bulletin

Selection of Courses:

When selecting courses, it is important that you determine whether or not you have sufficient background preparation.  Look up each course in the Berkeley Bulletin and read the course description and the course prerequisite. Also, as necessary look up the course descriptions of the prerequisite courses to help you determine whether or not you already covered the prerequisite subjects.  If you need advice on whether or not a particular course is at the right level for you, contact the course instructor.  Note: The schedule of classes includes names of the course instructors, and the "Faculty" information on the College of Chemistry website links to contact information for Chemical Engineering and Chemistry faculty.


You are required to enroll in at least 13 units each semester.  Some of your proposed courses may be unavailable for the academic year or may already be full when you try to enroll.  Before using the Cal Central Course Enrollment system, please be prepared to select alternate courses to those you sent with your EAP application. While you may put your name on the wait lists for courses that are full, there is no guarantee that you will get in and you should enroll in additional courses as alternatives.


Your primary contact concerning course enrollment is Shamaya Pellum in 121 Gilman Hall who can be reached by e-mail at or or by telephone at (510) 643-1745.

Important Dates:

Dates for the beginning and ending of instruction, etc., are available on the UC Berkeley Academic Calendar.

Deadlines for adding and dropping courses, etc. are available on the lists of important dates.

We hope you have a wonderful experience while you are here and we look forward to meeting you.
