UC Berkeley Ranking (University of California Berkeley)

The UC Berkeley ranking in the GPA system is Top 50 / Tier 1.

UC Berkeley (University of California Berkeley) is located in the greater Bay Area, east of San Francisco, and has maintained a remarkable reputation in spite of being equally famous for its 1960s and ongoing social radicalism. Its international perception remains good but Berkeley is not as well known and recognized as San Francisco for example. It scores lower than other US institutions on the GPA perception index. It has a strong internet presence as well as ongoing rankings as a world-class institution, and therefore can be considered Tier 1.

Additional information: Institutional History

  • In 1866, the land that comprises the current Berkeley campus was purchased by the private College of California. Because it lacked sufficient funds to operate, it eventually merged with the state-run Agricultural, Mining, and Mechanical Arts College to form the University of California. The university’s charter was signed by California Governor Henry Haight in 1868. Professor John Le Conte was appointed interim president, serving until 1870 when the Board of Regents elected Henry Durant, the founder of the College of California. The university opened in September 1869 using the former College of California’s buildings in Oakland as a temporary home while the new campus underwent construction. In 1871, the Board of Regents stated that women should be admitted on an equal basis with men. With the completion of North and South Halls in 1873, the university relocated to its Berkeley location
