Degree Verification Option


If you are not registered and paying fees to UC Berkeley for the current semester, you cannot use Calnet to access the Career Center services (e.g., Handshake, counseling appointments, etc.). You can instead register to request a one-time exception to access Career Center services if you meet one of the four conditions below:

  1. On Filing Fee, or
  2. Scheduled to graduate by the end of the current semester and was registered for the previous semester (fall or spring), or
  3. On an approved Berkeley Study Abroad program, or
  4. Are registered to return to Berkeley for the next academic semester and are considered a student in “Good Standing” by your department/college

To do so, start by selecting our online Degree Verification Registration process.


Special Note for Clients with Existing Letter Service Accounts

Any client with an existing Letter Service account can login to their online file using the Alumni Login. If you don't know your CCID#, fill out this Forgot Your CCID? form and it will be emailed to you. Please note these recent changes regarding the Letter Service: https://career.berkeley.edu/Letter/ServiceRetire

However, if you want to use other Career Center services (Handshake, Counseling, etc.), you must register for Degree Verification as explained above.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.
