Welcome and Thank You to Parents & Families of International Students!
When international students embark on their journey to UC Berkeley, they rarely do so alone. Parents, family, and friends play a big role — even from a distance — in offering support throughout a student's university career. Berkeley International Office appreciates the role you play in supporting your student!
The 2020-2021 International Parent & Family Calendar highlights key dates for new UC Berkeley students and suggestions for how families can offer support throughout the academic year year.
