Berkeley Exchange Program
The Berkeley Exchange Program enables an Ed.D. student who has completed residence at HGSE for the equivalent of one academic year to study at the Graduate School of Education at the University of California, Berkeley, for one or two semesters. HGSE students at Berkeley will continue to pay HGSE tuition, and their Berkeley grades will be recorded on their HGSE transcripts. Permission to study at Berkeley requires the approval of the student's advisor, the assistant dean for the doctor of education program, and the academic dean. Applications are available from the Office of the Registrar.
