With a view to the extension of the advantages of the University to teachers and other persons whose engagements will not permit residence at the University, courses of instruction have been offered each year in San Francisco, and at other places.

Persons who offer to do systematic work in the Extension Courses, and to take an examination in them are enrolled as students. Those who pass satisfactory examinations receive from the University Certificates of Record of the work done, which may be accredited to them, upon their scholarship records, if they become resident students of the University at Berkeley. Visitors are admitted to the Extension Courses at the discretion of the instructor in charge.

During the first half of the year 1901-02, the following courses, free to the public, were given:
