Sources & Methodology:
  • Undergraduate student data only, sourced from the UC Berkeley's data warehouse reporting system, Cal Answers, unless otherwise noted below.
  • Fall 2020 housing saw a radical difference from average due to social distancing protocols during the COVID-19 pandemic. On-campus housing for students in the residential halls was single occupancy only. Occupancy levels in apartments for undergraduate and graduate student and student family housing (University Village Albany) remained the same.
  • Gender: as collected for federal reporting requirements. "All Other" includes "Decline to State."
  • Residency (tuition status): based on year average headcount, census snapshot.
  • First generation: defined as neither parent earned a four-year degree as reported in the undergraduate admissions application.
  • Pell Grant: calculated as the number of students who received a Pell Grant in Fall, Spring, or Summer of the financial aid year divided by the total number of registered students during the same time period for both freshman and transfer entrants.
  • Financial aid (any, gift aid, and loans): based on the count of registered students and financial aid paid during Fall and Spring semesters.
  • Graduation rates: freshman and transfer rates are for Fall entry cohorts.
  • Retention rates: one-year retention rates, for Fall entrants who returned in the following Fall.
  • University Housing: includes students living in residence halls, apartments for undergraduates, University Village campus-owned family apartments, and affiliated properties. Data provided by Residential and Student Service Programs.
