Senior residence rule

The college requires that your final 30 units and your final two semesters toward your B.S. degree be completed in residence (you must be registered at UC Berkeley) in the College of Engineering. You must also meet the university’s Senior Residence requirement (24 units completed in residence once you reach 90 units). By completing the College of Engineering residence requirement, you will automatically meet the university’s requirement.

If you are enrolled in the Education Abroad Program, you may be permitted a modified Senior Residence requirement by completing 24 of your final 60 units in residence in the College of Engineering.

Please consult with your Engineering Student Services (ESS) Adviser if you believe you will not be able to meet the Senior Residence requirement. Under specific circumstances, students can request a waiver of the requirement.
