Limited status

A limited status applicant — frequently known as a non-degree-seeking student — is held to the same restrictions as applicants pursuing a second B.A. or B.S. degree.

Admission will be on an individual basis. There is no guarantee of admission. Campus policies on limited status applicants are as follows:

UC Berkeley

Currently only the College of Chemistry will consider admitting students in limited status. Limited status is granted only in special circumstances; students' needs, abilities, and programs should have enough urgency to justify admitting them in place of students in regular status, and there should be no reasonable alternative available. Use of limited status to enable students to raise their scholarship average is not permitted. See the check majors section for details.
