Demographics and tuition
Roughly 60% of enrolled students identify themselves as female. A majority of students identify themselves as Black/African American (31%) or Hispanic/Latino (31%); additionally, 8% of students identify themselves as White, 2% as Asian, and <1% Native Hawaiian or Pacific Islander. Of the students, 11% are non-resident aliens.
Berkeley is a for-profit college that aims to extract as much money from students as possible without regard for whether they are appropriate for their institution. Berkeley aggressively attempts to recruit potential students by telling them they not only will not have to pay, that they will receive money back from their loans.
Once Berkeley has received their money, their interest in the student will wane. Students have been tricked into signing admissions documents, not understanding that they have been enrolled, never attending classes, then badgered for years to pay for classes that they never took.
