Newly Admitted Students Pathways

Congratulations on your admission to the University of California, Berkeley!

Many students have the opportunity to participate in Newly Admitted Student Pathway or dual degree  programs like the Fall Program for First Semester (FPF), the Berkeley Changemaker Program, and/or the Hong Kong University (HKU) Program. It’s important to have the financial aid information necessary before choosing your program.

The information below will assist you and your family in understanding how participating in FPF, the Changemaker Program, or HKU could impact your financial aid for the academic year. Should your participation in one of these programs be impacted by COVID-19, we will adjust your Cost of Attendance and aid offer to reflect your updated program.

Note: These are general responses and may not apply to all students and/or in all cases.
