— When it comes to the schedule for the classes of 2018, students will have a lot to think about.
The first of the year’s three weekends will have an expected attendance of about 6,000 people.
Classes are being pushed back from May to July because of wildfires.
The rest of the school year will be the same, with classes scheduled to begin July 7.
The University of California is trying to accommodate the expected increase in attendance by giving classes at the end of the month instead of on the first Monday in April.
This means classes will begin the first week of August and last for three days.
The university’s website lists more than 3,000 class days to fill, which is the first full week of classes for 2019.
The next two weeks will be for finals, which students have to complete before their exams.
Classes start the following week.
For students who attend the classes at Berkeley’s student union, the decision was made to keep them on campus through the weekend.
The campus was closed Saturday, but the campus is still open, said UC Berkeley vice chancellor for finance and administration Barbara Fink, who oversees the university’s budget.
The UC Berkeley student union has been working to get students home for the holidays, which means classes are scheduled for the first three weekends.
The university is planning to allow students to leave early from their campuses and to attend classes elsewhere.
“If they choose to stay, they can get home on the third weekend, and we are working to have them there,” Fink said.
The campus is expected to reopen to the public on Sunday, Fink added.
Classes will be held at the Berkeley campus, with the university giving classes in the building that was closed earlier this year to prepare for the new year.
“Our campus will be open as normal and students will be able to attend any class that they want,” Finkle said.
