Do international students have to be enrolled full-time in summer?
Full-time enrollment is required for international students with a UC Berkeley I-20 (F-1) or DS-2019 (J-1) with a summer start date. It must be maintained during the entire period noted on the I-20 or DS-2019. Dropping below full-time, or withdrawing without approval from Berkeley International Office, may result in a violation of your immigration status.
Contact a Berkeley International Office adviser if you face unexpected, extreme circumstances and are considering dropping below full-time only after you arrive. I-20s will not be issued to students enrolled less than full-time. Waitlisted courses do not count toward full-time enrollment.
How many units is full-time enrollment in summer?
