Check and Update your Concentration

Course Enrollment

Student Financial Agreement Needed for Fall Enrollment

What is the Student Financial Agreement (SFA)?

The Student Financial Agreement (SFA) provides important information to students about the financial policies associated with their enrollment at UC Berkeley. Tuition and fee charges are incurred through enrollment and other charges posted to student accounts throughout the semester. The SFA sets forth expectations for making payment on charges when they are due. We feel it is important that students understand and acknowledge their financial responsibilities when it comes to the charges on their student account. This document also addresses the policies related to, among other things, non-payment, communications, and student privacy (FERPA).   

Next Steps:

You will see an alert when you log into CalCentral beginning 4/16/21.  You will be asked to read statements related to enrollment and tuition & fees charged to your student account, then asked to accept and submit the acknowledgement.

If you have any questions, please contact Cal Student Central for assistance.
