Electronic Submission: Graduate Student Application
Prospective students applying for graduate study in the Department of Nuclear Engineering should complete and electronically submit a University of California at Berkeley Graduate Student Application.
Please note: The application is only considered submitted when you press the submit bottom.
The University of California will supply you with a unique ID number when you complete and submit your on-line application. Please write this ID number down. You will need to refer to this number when you make inquiries.
Reactivation: If you submitted an application within the past two years, but did not register, you will need to re-apply.
