Berkeley College

Distance Learning Program
Through the power of the Internet, Berkeley brings its classrooms to students online with the same high standards of its on-site classes. Students receive the same proven curriculum, faculty support, high standards, and ultimate job placement as the on-site programs and learn directly from faculty members with successful records in business and excellent teaching credentials. Small, stimulating classes emphasize the development of creative and analytical skills. Students can log on to Berkeley anytime, anywhere-and earn a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree in business administration or a Bachelor of Business Administration (B.B.A.) degree in general business in as little as three years.

Berkeley supports each one of its online students with an instructor, classmates, and an academic adviser, all of whom are just an e-mail away.

Berkeley has always taught courses to all generations. With the understanding that many students may need to balance work, family, and social responsibilities with their course work, a Berkeley student may log on to a course from anywhere in the world, anytime he or she wants.

Online learners may use all of Berkeley's services, from libraries to academic advisers. More than 20 Berkeley career service professionals are on the staff to help with students' resumes and interviewing skills. With many connections to professionals in the business world, career service professionals also arrange interviews for students with many of the finest corporations in the New York area.

Berkeley's faculty members are practicing professionals who are as accessible as they are accomplished. Faculty members combine academic credentials and business success in the fields they teach, ensuring that students acquire the most current knowledge and skills.

The Berkeley balance of conceptual and practical education results in 94 percent of their graduates gaining employment in positions related to their course work.

Transfer counselors help students transfer their previously earned credits to Berkeley. Prior learning experiences (including alternatives to classroom instruction) may help students earn credits and complete their programs ahead of schedule.

Programs of Study
Berkeley is a college committed to excellence in business education and strongly aligned with the business community. The online program delivers an exceptional distance learning education for working adults. Berkeley students receive all of the personal attention and benefits of the traditional educational experience-without ever having to leave home or office.

The following is a sample of distance learning courses offered via the Internet: business organization and management, mathematics for business, entertainment studies, business law II, spreadsheets and database management applications, graphical business presentations and integration, English composition (I-III), international trade, international marketing, world literature, philosophy, contemporary American history, humanities in the media, environmental science, health and heredity, psychology, microeconomics, sociology, the changing family: a multicultural perspective, culture and crisis, principles of management, human resource management, small business management, and consumer behavior.

Last year, full-time students pay $17,900 in tuition and fees. Berkeley offers protection from tuition increase to students who maintain continuous, full-time enrollment.

Financial Aid
Berkeley is committed to helping students find the financing options that make their education possible. Financial assistance programs are available from federal and state sources and through Berkeley in the forms of scholarships, grants, loans and other awards. Berkeley College awards more than $12 million each year in scholarships and institutional aid based on academic achievement and financial need. Financial advisers are available to meet with students and their families to develop a plan best suited to individual goals and circumstances.

Applying for Distance Education
Basic requirements for admission to Berkeley College include graduation from an accredited high school or equivalent and entrance exam or SAT/ACT scores. A personal interview is strongly recommended. The following credentials must be submitted as part of the application process: a completed application form, a nonrefundable $40 application fee, and an unofficial transcript for currently enrolled high school students or a high school diploma or its equivalent for high school graduates. Students who graduated from an accredited high school or its equivalent and attended a college or university are considered transfer students. To be considered for admission, transfer students must submit an application for admission and the nonrefundable $40 application fee, a transcript from each college or university attended, and a high school transcript or GED. For all students, applications are accepted after credentials are received.

To be admitted directly to the upper division, students must have completed either a relevant associate degree or at least 60 semester/90 quarter credits in appropriate course work (with a grade of C or better) at Berkeley or another institution.

Applications are accepted on an ongoing basis. Current students who wish to apply for online learning must obtain approval from an Academic Dean. Prospective students who wish to apply as online learning students should submit an online application on the Web site listed in the Contact section. Applicants must successfully complete a short introductory course to familiarize themselves with online learning prior to course registration.
