UC Berkeley Extension offers courses three terms per year: spring, summer and fall. Each term includes three IAEP sessions, and each session is four weeks long.
You may IAEP begin with any term or session, but you must enroll in a minimum of three consecutive sessions. You should apply at least eight to 10 weeks before your first session start date to guarantee space availability and to allow enough time to obtain an F-1 visa.

The full application review process can take three to four weeks, and applications are accepted until the application deadline. Applications are reviewed in the order they are received, and only complete applications are reviewed. IAEP sessions can fill before the application deadline, so send all application documents as soon as possible. You will be notified by mail regarding your acceptance status and further instructions.
