UCSB Mandatory Education


All incoming First Year, Transfer, and Education Abroad Program students are required to complete three online modules on alcohol and drug use, prevention of sexual violence, partner violence and stalking, and diversity, equity and inclusion, in addition to a two-hour in-person Gaucho FYI workshop.


2019 Online Modules

Incoming UC Santa Barbara students will automatically receive an email from EverFi, the company we have partnered with to provide our online education, with instructions to complete the online courses, including deadlines.

 

  • Freshman Summer Start (FSSP) students will receive the email in late July/early August.
  • Fall and EAP students will receive the email in late August/early September.

 

If you have not received an email from automated-message@everfi.net by mid-September, please first confirm that the email is not in your Junk/Spam folder before emailing us at sa-newstudentreq@ucsb.edu. Please include your name and UCSB perm number so that we can best assist you.

 

2019 Gaucho FYI

Enroll in a Gaucho FYI session using the reservation system at https://secure1.vzorientation.com/ucsb/.


Gaucho FYI is a mandatory two-hour in-person workshop that has been developed to introduce new students to a variety of health and safety topics. These workshops will be held during fall quarter on a variety of dates to fit your fall schedule. The deadline to enroll in a Gaucho FYI session is September 20. The last session will be offered on October 26.



Thumbs Up

Please note: Each of these online modules and the in-person workshop are required of all new First Year, Transfer, and Education Abroad Program students. If you do not complete all of these modules and a Gaucho FYI session by the deadlines, a block will be placed on your account which will prevent you from registering for Winter quarter courses.
