Bidding Check-list

Check-list to prepare for Bidding!

These items are optional but the Program Office highly encourages students to participate in as many event as possible.

Two weeks before bidding starts

One week prior to start to bidding

  • Decide if you want to go “undeclared.”
  • Review the OLR How-To
  • Check your Haas login and log in to OLR (Please note that the Bidding Process will not be viewable in OLR until closer to bidding.)
    • Your Haas username is generally firstname_lastname (the part before your @mba email address). Your password is self-selected.
    • If you forgot your password or Haas login, email helpdesk@haas.berkeley.edu. Please allow 48-72 hours for a response.

Day before and during Round 1

  • Review your top choice(s)
    • Ensure class meeting dates do not conflict (refer to Academic Calendar: Fall 2016, Spring 2017 TBD)
    • Plan out your bids! 
      • The max number of units you may bid on is 7 units. Students are not meant to come out of bidding with a complete schedule, but a good foundation for their schedule.
  • Bid on Classes!
    • Check the dates on the Registration Timeline for specific dates.
    • The maximum bid is 1 point less than your allotted points, ex. 2999 if you have 3000 bid points.
    • Use all your bid points in Round 1. That is the most competitive round.

During Round 2

  • If you have remaining points, bid on classes in Round 2.
  • All students may bid on all courses in Round 2.

After Bidding Ends

  • Have a great rest of the semester!
  • Billing and Payments
    • Ensure all semester tuition fees are paid. Blocks will prevent your grades from posting.
      • Summer fees are generally due June 15
      • Fall fees are due August 15
      • Spring fees are due February 15
    • You will be assessed based on the amount of units you are enrolled in after Bidding ends. 
  • Add/Drop – August and early September for Fall, January for Spring
    • This is the next opportunity to make changes to your schedule. Exact dates will be posted on Registration Timeline.
