Pathways to Four-Year Universities is a resource for California community college students who intend to transfer to UC Berkeley or another four-year university.


Pathway advisers from UC Berkeley help students develop a portfolio of classes that will pave the way to meeting transfer requirements. Advisers also support students throughout the admissions and transfer process to ensure that students receive accurate transfer information.


California community college students have access to over 600 summer courses through Berkeley Summer Sessions, where they take key prerequisites or gateway courses to most majors at UC Berkeley, other UC campuses, and many four-year institutions.

Financial Aid

Community colleges in the Pathways program have a unique financial aid agreement with Berkeley Summer Sessions that allows eligible US students to transfer any available federal financial aid to cover Summer Sessions classes.
