These programs focus on providing counseling and scholarships for first-generation and undocumented students.

Independent Student Programs

These programs are aimed at students with life experiences often considered non-traditional, such as veterans, student parents, and formerly incarcerated or foster youth.

Transfer Student Programs

These programs help ease the transition to Berkeley from community colleges or other institutions, with a particular focus on students from under-resourced backgrounds.
