Research Petition Updated

The application for IB research units has moved online. Students can apply for research units through IB until the third Friday of instruction (Sept. 11). Honors students also have updated guidelines for year-long project proposals that account for limited or no in-person research capacity from their sponsoring lab.


Declaring IB

The declaration application will open for fall on August 25. Students must receive confirmation that their application has been processed before scheduling an advising appointment.


Advising Updates During Remote Learning

IB Advising will be fully remote until campus and county recommendations allow otherwise. Major advising will still be conducted through Google Hangouts. See updates on our google doc. Continue to schedule your appointments on CalCentral and the advisor will create a Google Hangouts meeting. Though you need a pre-scheduled appointment for declaration, we have plenty of same-day appointments available every day. 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 be conducted entirely through Google Hangouts at ibpeers@berkeley.edu and Facebook Messenger.


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.
