Being a student can be pricey at the University of California – Berkeley.
With the cost of attendance per year averaging $29,078 for in-state students and $66,426 for out-of-state students, being smart about finances is extremely important.
To help make being a UC Berkely student a little bit easier, we compiled a comprehensive list of discounts that UC Berkeley students are eligible for.
The following list is broken down into two sections, a local list that UC Berkeley students have access to in the area (in-school and in Berkeley), and a national list that UC Berkeley students can take advantage of, which consists of most major brands and is typically for online purchases.
As a UC Berkeley student, you, of course, have access to both lists which totals to over 400 student discounts!
Although it’s incredibly expensive to be a student these days, you owe it to yourself to save as much as you can, wherever you go.
Don’t forget that you can also save on a OneClass subscription for unlimited access to every study guide, course note, textbook note, etc. on the website.
