Times and Places of Examination

Matriculation examinations are held in August and in January of each year; but the examinations in January are primarily for the purpose of enabling students in the University to remove matriculation deficiencies. Applicants for admission who present certificates from their teachers that they are prepared in the subjects they offer will be admitted to the January examinations. Such certificates must be filed with the Recorder of the Faculties before the examinations.

No person save a registered student of the University will be allowed to take any matriculation examination without having first filed an application for admission.

A circular regarding the matriculation examinations may be obtained by addressing the Recorder of the Faculties.

College Entrance Examination Board

Certificates of successful examinations before the College Entrance Examination Board will be accepted in lieu of matriculation examinations conducted by the University of California in all of the preparatory subjects, but at present the Board holds no examination covering the ground of English 14b.

The entrance examinations of the College Entrance Examination Board are usually held during the third week in June-1915, June 14-19.

All applications for examination must be addressed to the Secretary of the College Entrance Examination Board, Postoffice Sub-station 84, New York, N. Y., and must be made upon a blank form to be obtained from the Secretary of the Board upon application.

Applications for examination at points in the United States east of the Mississippi River, also at Minneapolis, St. Louis, and other points on the Mississippi River, must be received by the Secretary of the Board at least two weeks in advance of the examinations; applications for examination elsewhere in the United States or in Canada must be received at least three weeks in advance of the examinations; and applications for examinations outside of the United States and Canada must be received at least five weeks in advance of the examinations.

Applications received later than the dates named will be accepted when it is possible to arrange for the examination of the candidates concerned, but only upon the payment of $5 in addition to the usual fee.

The examination fee is $5 for all candidates examined at points in the United States and Canada and $15 for all candidates examined outside the United States and Canada. The fee (which cannot be accepted in advance of the application) should be remitted by postal order, express order, or draft on New York to the order of the College Entrance Examination Board.

A A list of the places at which examinations were held by the Board in June, 1914, was published about May 1. Requests that the examinations be held at particular points, to receive proper consideration, should be transmitted to the Secretary of the Board not later than February 1.

Points on the Pacific Coast at which examinations are usually held are as follows: Berkeley, Los Angeles, Nordhoff, Stanford University, Portland, Seattle, Spokane, Tacoma.

Dividing of Matriculation Examinations

An applicant for admission may, if he prefers, take his matriculation examinations in two parts-(a) preliminary, (b) final-but not more than two. The preliminary examination may be taken either in August or January. The final examination must be taken not later than eighteen months after the preliminary examination. The applicant may divide his examinations in any way that he prefers, provided that he passes the required 45 units during the two examination periods taken together. Applicants who are twenty-one years of age or who have been graduated from four-year courses in high schools or other secondary schools are not subject to the above limitations as to the division of examinations, but they may take their examinations at such times as they prefer until all the required examinations shall have been passed. For the purpose of division between two series of examinations, the examinations given in June by the College Entrance Examination Board and those in August given by the University in the same year may count as one series, the applicant, at his option, taking a part in June and a part in August.


Admission from accredited schools is regulated by the following Order of the Regents, passed March 4, 1884, and amended September 10, 1895, and January 10, 1905:

"Upon the request of the principal of any public or private school in California whose course of study embraces, in kind and extent, the subjects required for admission to any college of the University at Berkeley, a committee of the Academic Senate will visit such school and report upon the quality of the instruction there given. If the report of such committee be favorable, a graduate of the school, upon the personal recommendation of the principal, accompanied by his certificate that the graduate has satisfactorily completed the studies of the course preparatory to the college he wishes to enter, may, at the discretion of the Faculty of such college, be admitted without examination.

"Principals' applications made in accordance with the provisions of the foregoing paragraph must be in the hands of the Recorder of the Faculties, at Berkeley, on or before the first day of December of each school year.

"Private schools receiving examination shall pay a fee of five dollars for each such visit, provided that twenty dollars shall be the maximum fee for more than three such visits. If a special journey be required for such visit, the expenses thereof may be assessed against such school."

No school will be accredited unless its course of study includes all the subjects required for admission to at least one of the Academic Colleges.

A recommendation from the principal of an accredited school must state distinctly that the graduate in whose favor it is issued was in attendance at that school for at least one year immediately preceding his graduation; or it must be indorsed, i.e., fully concurred in, by the principal of the accredited school or schools previously attended by the applicant.

Recommended graduates of accredited schools who wish to postpone their entrance to the University should send their recommendations, with specific request for extension, to the Recorder of the Faculties. Extension may be granted for one year, with the possibility of renewal, upon request. Recommendations become invalid if not presented within twenty months after graduation.
