In light of new legislation signed by Gov. Gavin Newsom, Berkeley Haas will no longer reduce its enrollment by 70 students across its three MBA programs and the MFE program.
Per the UC Berkeley statement, sent late yesterday:
With the legislation passed and signed by the governor, the university will return to its original admissions/enrollment targets. In late March, as originally planned, we will extend admissions offers to more than 15,000 incoming freshmen and then to more than 4,500 transfers in mid-April.
The mitigation plans we previously announced and described are no longer needed and will not be implemented. All offers of admission will be for in-person only, as originally planned.
We will still have spring start admits — that occurs every year — but it will not be the significantly higher number the mitigation planning called for.
The approximately 400 graduate school enrollment slots will also be reinstated, in full.
