When you enroll in or inquire about Extension courses your name is placed on our mailing list and you will automatically receive a catalog each term for the next two years. If you receive more than one catalog, please help us reduce waste by clipping the mailing label from the extra copy and sending it to UC Berkeley Extension, CMS Dept., 1995 University Ave., Suite 110, Berkeley, CA 94704-7000, so that we can remove that entry from our list.
If you have moved since you last enrolled, submit a Change of Permanent Student Information form to update your permanent student record. The complete form must include your signature.
UC Berkeley Extension never sells its mailing list, but if you would like to be removed from the list, please send the mailing label to UC Berkeley Extension, CMS Dept., 1995 University Ave., Suite 110, Berkeley, CA 94704-7000.
UC Berkeley Extension provides federal- and state-mandated academic accommodations to students with a wide range of disabilities, including cognitive, sensory and mobility impairments. It is important to begin the accommodation process as early as possible to ensure that Disabled Student Services (DSS) can coordinate support services such as sign language interpreters, assistive technology and note-takers, and to assist in the facilitation of test-taking schedules for individual courses.
You only need to complete the assessment process once. Each individual student, however, must contact UC Berkeley Extension for services each semester. If you know you have a disability or if you have received academic accommodations in the past but are unsure whether or not you need them for your Extension coursework, we suggest that you complete the accommodation process. You always have the option not to use such services during the term.
In the event that you are dissatisfied with the process or the response from UC Berkeley Extension staff, you should follow the complaint procedure outlined below.

As part of the education and learning experience, students routinely take notes during class lectures. In addition, students and instructors may wish to record lectures and other classroom presentations. Lecture notes and recordings involve issues related to the intellectual property rights of instructors and the privacy rights of students. To protect these rights, UC Berkeley Extension has adopted guidelines based upon University of California and campus policies governing these activities in the classroom.
No business, agency or person shall give, sell or otherwise distribute or publish course lecture notes, or any recording, in any medium, of any course given at the University of California, nor use such lecture notes or recording for any commercial purpose without the written consent of the instructor.
If you are enrolled in a course, you may take lecture notes and, with the permission of the instructor, make sound recordings of the class (video recordings are prohibited), for the purpose of individual or group study or for other non-commercial purposes reasonably arising from participation in the course. If you are enrolled in a course, you may also provide such course lecture notes or sound recording to other students for the purpose of individual or group study or for other non-commercial purposes reasonably arising from participation in the course. You must obtain prior permission from the instructor each session you wish to make a recording (complete this PDF form). The instructor must assure that each student attending the class on that occasion is aware of the recording and has agreed to be recorded.
Recordings of classes at the University of California that capture the actual sounds and/or images of those classes, in any medium, shall not be distributed or communicated for commercial purposes without a written agreement between the instructor and the University. This prohibition includes recordings made by any person with the instructor’s written consent. Any such agreement must consider not only the rights of the instructor and the University, but also those of third parties. It may be necessary to secure rights from these third parties before any distribution or communication takes place. Unauthorized use of lecture notes or recordings is subject to the federal Copyright Act, California Civil Code, and University policy and may subject an individual to legal proceedings brought by the instructor as well as action by the University.
No third party will be allowed to attend Extension classes on behalf of an enrolled student, with the exception of those authorized through the Disabled Student Coordinator on behalf of an enrolled disabled student.
Instructors may make audio or video recordings of presentations for instructional purposes related to their course at UC Berkeley Extension. The intent to record should be communicated to the program director in advance, so that the intention will be referenced in the course catalog description. The intent to record should also be referenced in the syllabus. The recordings may not be used for any purpose except to meet the educational objectives of that particular class. The recordings may not be shown or distributed to any other individual or group without the express written permission of every student enrolled in that class and UC Berkeley Extension.
For further information on obtaining written permission to use instructional classroom recordings, instructors and students should consult their academic department.
