In this program, high school students take actual UC Berkeley classes. All Residential Track students must be enrolled in 2 courses. Because classes are condensed during the summer, there will be a lot of material covered in a short amount of time. It is recommended that the minimum amount of time per week students spend studying should be the number of units they are taking multiplied by three, (e.g. if a student is taking a three-unit course, they should be studying at least nine hours per week for the course outside of class). At the beginning of the course, instructors will usually share a syllabus that outlines the course plan for the entire session, which will give the students an idea of what is expected and plenty of time to prioritize. Most instructors won't know that you are a high school student and will treat you as though you are an undergraduate student!
