Remote Start Cohort Program

About the program

The Remote Start Cohort Program seeks to support international students that began their studies remotely in either Fall 2020 or Spring 2021, and are now beginning their in-person college experience. UC Berkeley looks forward to welcoming you to campus!

With a variety of both in-person and virtual events during the first month of school, you will have the chance to connect with other remote-start students and make new friends, meet with various offices and departments across campus, and attend informative workshops. These events will include:

  • Weekly discord happy hours

  • In-person snacks and chat

  • Speed friending

  • Virtual tour of campus and online scavenger hunt

  • CAPS/UHS Meet-and-Greet

  • Career Center Workshop

  • Local hike meetup and more!

Through this program, participants will be able to quickly plug into campus resources and tools, create a supportive community with fellow international students, and start their semester off strong!
