Tips for Tele-BEARS!
It is almost that time again to register for classes! Tele-BEARS is a stressful time for everyone and can be really confusing for new students. I always seem to have a late phase one appointment, which can make things even more ambiguous as classes fill up early. Do not fear though because Berkeley offers tons of cool classes across different departments. Make sure to check the schedule of classes early, and often to see what classes are being offered for next semester. Also meet with your advisor early to talk about course planning! Remember to always have backup courses just in case the ones you planned on taking fill up! Also make sure to enroll in popular courses during phase one!
Also check course restrictions before picking classes so you don't end up trying to register for a class that only accepts juniors or seniors.
If you are having trouble reaching the minimum of 13 units, check out the DeCal website. These are student run courses on interesting topics that give you 1 or 2 units. I went to a wheelchair basketball DeCal a couple times just for fun! Also make sure to check out volunteering options through Cal Corps. Many offer academic units.
Hope this helps! Remember tele-BEARS does not need to be scary :-)
