New Student?

June 3, 2019
Congratulations and welcome to UC Berkeley! We look forward to providing for your software needs.

One question we often receive from new Students is, "when can I start using the software?" Software eligibility is linked to registration status. The registration process does take some time and must complete, and status must be updated to reflect an eligible affiliation ("Registered Student"), before most software can be downloaded and activated.

You can check your eligibility for various products by using the UCB Eligibility Checker. Your registration status can be monitored through the CalCentral website.
