Dear <<First Name>>:

Berkeley International Office remains open to provide services and support to the international community. We strongly urge you to submit questions via email or phone, or make use of our drop-in virtual student advising, available during normal advising drop-in hours (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday 10 am–12 p.m. and 1–4 p.m.), rather than visiting in person. We encourage you to practice social distancing to protect both yourself and others around you and slow the spread of COVID-19.

Our drop-in virtual student advising is available during advising drop-in hours (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday 10 a.m.–12 p.m. and 1–4 p.m.). Please see our Contact Us webpage for access instructions.

For Express Mail, follow the instructions on our website and include your eShip order number in your email request.
