Berkeley MEng Application Fee Waiver and GRE Optional

Exclusive to UC Berkeley undergraduates and alumni 

 
Application Fee Waiver
The Fung Institute is proud to announce that we will be waiving the Master of Engineering application fee for UC Berkeley current undergraduates and alumni. Please complete and submit your application by the Monday, January 7, 2019 deadline in order to have your application fee waived. This process will happen automatically, on or around the application deadline, based on the undergraduate university information listed in your application.
 
GRE Optional 
Additionally, UC Berkeley current undergraduates and alumni applying to any of the seven departments who earned their UC Berkeley Bachelor's degree with a 3.5 or higher cumulative GPA are not required to submit GRE scores with their application. This option is open to any UC Berkeley current undergraduates and alumni from all majors, though we strongly recommend the GRE for those who hold non-technical degrees or feel the scores would be a positive addition to their application. Applicants can leave the GRE score blank or list a zero score.
 
Updated on 11/26/18: All seven departments are making the GRE optional -- Bioengineering, Civil & Environmental Engineering, Electrical Engineering & Computer Sciences, Industrial Engineering & Operations Research, Materials Science & Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, and Nuclear Engineering
