Register for classes

At Berkeley, you have a generous range of courses from which to choose, and creating your class schedule will take some organization. Follow these simple steps every semester to get ready to register for classes.

  1. Look out for an email message from your department regarding Tele-BEARS enrollment.
  2. Follow the email’s instructions for arranging a time to meet with your faculty adviser.
  3. Bring the following items to faculty advising:
    1. A Tele-BEARS schedule form completed with your intended schedule for the upcoming semester.
    2. A degree worksheet with your completed and in-progress courses. You may use the Degree Audit Reporting System (DARS) to help you fill out your worksheet.
    3. An unofficial transcript printed from Bear Facts. You can get a transcript by clicking “Academic Record” and “All Grades.” Be sure to check the box “Show Student Name” so that your transcript can be identified as yours.
  4. Meet with your faculty adviser and obtain your adviser code.
  5. Sign up for classes via Tele-BEARS during the Phase I and II appointment times.

Check the registrar’s Tele-BEARS guide for complete information on enrolling for classes.

Bioengineering Tele-BEARS instructions

Bioengineering Group Faculty Advising
October 12-23, 2015

Please note the following information:

All Bioengineering and BioE/MSE students must see your Faculty Adviser in order to receive your Advising Code for Tele-BEARS Spring 16 Registration. You must attend a meeting to get the code.Please do not request it via email

You should go online and fill out the online Tele-BEARS form, you can get the forms online. Once you have gotten your code you will use it to access Tele-BEARS during your phase 1 period.

When meeting with your faculty adviser it is helpful if you have a BioE Worksheet filled out; you can get it on-line or I have copies in 306 Stanley.  First semester freshmen do not need to bring a transcript or DARS as there won't be really any helpful information.

It is important that you see your faculty adviser during the specified dates of faculty advising which are October 12-23, 2015.   The faculty are available and have scheduled meetings to meet with you to discuss your courses and to give your advising code.  It is not advisable to wait after the Faculty Advising period to obtain your advising code.   If you do not see them during this time their busy schedules may make it more difficult to get an appointment which can result in missing your Phase 1 appointment. 

What if I can't make my faculty advisers meeting?
You can attend any of the other BioE Faculty Advisers Group meetings. Once the Adviser has reviewed your schedule they will give you your advising code. All the Faculty Advisers will have a list of all the advisees and their advising codes. It’s helpful to bring a filled out BioE worksheet to the meeting. 

Who is my Faculty Adviser?
Freshmen: Terry Johnson
Regent Scholars: Dorian Liepmann
Joint BioE/MSE: Kevin Healy

The rest of you should have already chosen a faculty adviser.  If you are not sure, a listing of advisers & advisees are posted in 306 Stanley on the Bulletin Board.

For students who are participating in Study Abroad:
Contact your faculty adviser via email  with your proposed schedule, also let them know that you are participating in the program, and you would like your advising code also please make sure and cc Cindy Manley-Fields on the email.  Please plan ahead so that your request is not last minute, and that we can send you your advising code in a timely manner.

** Graduating Seniors should make an appointment with their Engineering Students Services Adviser in 230 Bechtel for a FINAL DEGREE CHECK **
