Congratulations on your student’s acceptance as an undergraduate to UC Berkeley!
Your student will first complete online modules addressing academics and life at Berkeley and then will participate in Golden Bear Orientation, which will take place in Spring 2023
While your students are transitioning to the campus community, here are some resources just for parents and student supporters.
There is an orientation just for Cal parents/supporters; find out specifics, including agenda details, on our Parents & Supporters Orientation page.
Not a parent? No problem!
Cal Parents and the Letter Home series are useful for anyone who serves as a support system for a Berkeley undergraduate.
- Cal Parents Website
Cal Parents provides many resources for parents, guardians, and families of all UC Berkeley students. You'll find a resource guide, Facebook community, and updates on campus policies.
- Letter Home Newsletter
Letter Home is a newsletter specifically geared to families of undergraduates at UC Berkeley, published by Cal Parents.
- Fees, Requirements, Etc.
