We help make dreams come true.

The Admissions and Enrollment (A&E) cluster provides student and instructional program support services that serve over 83,000 applicants, 35,500 students and countless alumni.

The A&E units play critical roles in shaping the Cal student experience from prospects through to alumni and beyond. We also serve the needs of faculty and staff, academic and administrative departments, the  University of California Office of the President (UCOP) and external agencies.

A&E Operating Principles

Admissions & Enrollment supports UC Berkeley's mission of access and excellence, and Student Affairs' principles of access, service, and engagement.

  • As Cal's front door, we help people reach their dreams by providing support and solutions for success, whether student, faculty, staff or alumni.
  • We lead nationally and serve locally through our innovation, ongoing improvement, and exceptional expertise.
  • We support staff by empowering them to make decisions guided by policies and goals, and supported through staff training.

By following these principles, A&E works to transform lives in a single generation and to create global leaders for future generations.
