Advising Updates During Remote Learning

IB Advising will be fully remote until campus and county recommendations allow otherwise. See our Advising Update Document for more details on changes to advising and major policy.

Major advising will still be conducted through Google Meet (formerly "Hangouts"). Continue to schedule your appointments on CalCentral and the advisor will create a Google Meet link. Same-day appointments can be made starting at 8:00 AM, and up to 30 minutes in advance, for things like course planning, graduation checks, research, and most general questions.

IB Peer advising will return with virtual contact in the fall semester.


Golden Bear Advising

Welcome new students! We're excited to connect with our new transfer students through Golden Bear Advising, starting June 15. New transfers interested in changing their GBA section to IB should fill out this interest form. Write to us at ibusso@berkeley.edu with any and all questions related to the IB major. Incoming freshmen can write to us too or book a virtual appointment!


Academic Progress Reports

IB is now using the Academic Progress Report (APR) in CalCentral to monitor your major requirements. If you notice an error in an IB requirement, submit our error report form and an IB advisor will contact you. If a university or college requirement is incorrect, use the online L&S form to report the error to a college advisor.
