Reserve Your Space in an Orientation Session

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we are implementing an online orientation program this summer for both students and parents. Our online program will be a complete orientation experience!

Reservations Information

Please read the information on this website about Online Transfer Orientation and Online Parent & Family Orientation before submitting your reservation. Your Statement of Intent to Register (SIR) must be received by UCSB Admissions before you can access the Orientation reservation system.

Submit your reservation promptly! Space in each remote session is limited and session dates will close when they are full. You must complete the process using the online reservation system to be confirmed for an Orientation session.

To complete your reservation you will need:

  • Your preferred session date - and alternative dates if that session is not available
  • The names of your parents and adult family members who will attend the online parent and family program

Program fees:

  • No payment is due when you make a reservation for Orientation.
  • You will be billed in the fall on your UCSB BARC Billing Statement.
  • See fees & billing for information on fees, payment, and financial assistance.

Be sure to see Before Your Session on this website for information on what you will need to prepare for your session.

Sign in to UCSB Orientation Reservations

Reserve your space in an Orientation session using the online reservation system by clicking on the link below. Follow the directions to submit a reservation and confirm your session date. You will choose from the available session dates that are listed on the online form.

If you recently submitted your Statement of Intent to Register at UCSB, it might take a few days for your record to be added to the Orientation reservation system. If the system will not allow you to create an account, please wait a day or two before making your reservation.

Changes and Cancellations

Any change to your reservation is subject to availability and it is preferred that changes be made well in advance of your session date. You can make changes through the online reservation system up to 7 days in advance of your session. Within 7 days, please call Orientation Reservations at 805-893-3443 for assistance. You must call us directly if you need to cancel your entire reservation, as this cannot be done online.

Special Arrangements

Orientation Programs welcomes requests for special arrangements due to a disability or other special need. Please call us at least three weeks in advance so that we can make arrangements.
