How to Apply
The Berkeley Promise application is now live! Please click here to create an account and begin your application. The application deadline is Friday, September 28 at 9 PM PST.
GET YOUR RECOMMENDATION REQUEST IN EARLY
We have opened this year’s application early to give you the opportunity to ask for your recommendation BEFORE the end of the school year.
We know it can be awkward to ask a teacher, counselor, or other adult for a recommendation. We want to reassure you that teachers and counselors want to help students succeed. Even if they don't know you really well, they will usually still write a recommendation for you, if you give them enough time to complete it.
