Degree term

During the semester in which you will graduate:

  • You may take fewer than the minimum units if you don’t need them to complete your degree. Note: If you are receiving federal financial aid you should consult with the Financial Aid Office to determine if enrolling in fewer than 12 units will impact your aid package. International students should consult with the Berkeley International Office prior to enrolling in fewer than 12 units.
  • You may take fewer than two technical courses if you don’t need them to complete your degree.
  • The College of Engineering hosts a commencement ceremony each spring to which all graduates are invited.
