Pre-College Scholars are not taught by high school teachers or seasonal instructors. They are taught by the same instructors that serve UC Berkeley Undergraduate students - this includes UC Berkeley faculty (whether tenured and non-tenured), Graduate Student Instructors (GSI), Permanent lecturers, and more. Course instructors are determined by the Academic Department that houses the course and are highly accomplished in their field. This ensures that all students will have an immersive experience and know exactly what to expect should they choose to apply to UC Berkeley in the future. All pre-college students are treated and evaluated like any other UC Berkeley matriculated student. Instructors will not even know who falls under the Pre-College Scholars program and who doesn't as that information is not normally provided to them through the course of the program.
