Academic Resources

Below are the most common resources, offices, and programs that relate to a student's academic success. 


Academic Calendar

Includes important student deadlines and is updated periodically.

ASUC Student Advocate

This is a student-run office. Each year, we assist hundreds of students with issues regarding the University. These cases inform our advocacy for changes in University policy that prioritize and protect students’ rights and general welfare.

College of Letters & Science Advising

Includes important information on L&S deadlines and policies, as well as how to make an appointment with an L&S advisor. 

Data Scholars

The Data Scholars Program provides spaces where students from many disciplines and backgrounds learn together, develop their data science skills, and co-create a diverse community.  Students receive mentorship, support in introductory data science classes, and guidance to advance in the field through academic support, research opportunities, professional development, and community with other Scholars. 

Eta Kappa Nu

Eta Kappa Nu (HKN) is the national Electrical and Computer Engineering honor society. The Berkeley chapter is among the most active engineering societies at Berkeley, providing academic services to fellow undergraduates. Our two offices are located in 290 Cory and 345 Soda near the northeastern corner of the UC Berkeley campus

Institute for Cognitive and Brain Sciences

The Institute of Cognitive and Brain Sciences (ICBS) supports research exploring the study of the mind and the biological basis of behavior and mental function. Founded as the Institute for Cognitive Studies in 1984, ICBS adopted its current name in 2000 in recognition of the emergence of cognitive neuroscience as a field for the bi-directional study of mind-brain relationships.

Ombuds Office for Students

The Ombuds Office can be your first step, your last resort, or anything in between. If you wish assistance sorting through a campus-related conflict or concern, please contact us. The Ombudsperson will listen to your concerns, serve as a sounding board, discuss your options with you, and help you get a new perspective and determine the next steps to take.

The office is strictly confidential and no one will know you have spoken with us unless you wish them to. The only exception to this confidentiality is where there appears to be imminent risk of serious harm or danger.

Student Learning Center

The Student Learning Center supports a global community of learners as they navigate the cultural expectations and academic rigor of UC Berkeley. Through service models that honor their diverse starting points and meet them where they are, we aim to empower all students to realize their full academic potential and aspirations.
