Fees for all Programs are due 30 days before the first day of class. After you are accepted, you will receive an invoice via email with instructions on how to pay your fees. We will not be able to reserve a space in your designated program if your program fee is not received by the deadline. Receipt of the program fee in a timely manner is the full responsibility of the student. Payments must be made directly to UC Berkeley Extension in U.S. dollars. Four payment options are available:
1. Credit Card
MasterCard, Visa and American Express are accepted. You may also pay fees online using your student account.
2. Bank Wire Transfers
They must be made in U.S. dollars and sent to:
Bank of America
1655 Grant St.
Concord, CA 94520 USA
Account number: 0175380001
Account name: UC Regents of the University of California, Berkeley, Extension, International Student Services
Routing number: 0260-0959-3
Swift Code: BOFAUS3N
You must scan and email a copy of your wire confirmation receipt to email@example.com or fax it to +1-510-643-0216.
All wire fees charged by the bank are the sender’s sole responsibility. You are not officially enrolled until International Student Administrative Services is able to successfully track and identify your wire transfer. The wire-tracking process may take 10–15 business days. No wire transfers will be accepted once the term has commenced.
3. Western Union Business Solutions
This payment portal allows you to pay your account balance in the currency of your choice and provides a simple, secure way of initiating a payment electronically. Get detailed payment instructions.
4. Bank Draft
Bank drafts must be in U.S. dollars and payable to UC Regents. The draft must be drawn on an account held at a U.S. bank or a U.S. branch of an international bank.
If your cancellation is received in writing via mail, fax or email prior to the start of your program, you will receive a refund less a $100 cancellation fee. The $200 application fee is nonrefundable. Given the special nature of International Programs, requests for refunds after the start of the term will not be granted. If UC Berkeley Extension expects to cancel a program, you will be notified at least 15 days before the scheduled start date and offered alternative study arrangements, if available; otherwise, you will be given a full refund. If your F-1 visa application is denied after you have been accepted to the program, you will receive a full refund of your program fee.
