Welcome to CE3

CE3: Transition. Transform. Transcend.

The Centers for Educational Equity and Excellence ensure systemically marginalized students excel at the top public University in the world. By respecting every undergraduate as a unique individual, CE3 programs empower UC Berkeley students to achieve and lead. CE3 is comprised of several programs and centers.

Access & Opportunity Programs

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.
