Golden Bear Prep is mandatory and gives you a comprehensive overview of UC Berkeley and your overall transition to campus. You’ll be introduced to Berkeley’s traditions, safety, wellness, diversity, and community.

This is important because Berkeley offers a vast array of resources, and you gain a huge advantage if you familiarize yourself with them as an incoming student.

You’ll be invited through a task in CalCentral to complete this portion of your Golden Bear Experience. Your Golden Bear Prep task on CalCentral is updated manually. Please allow up to five business days once you have completed all quizzes for your task to be marked as complete.
