Transfer Student Module

UCSB Transfer Student Module

The UCSB Transfer Student Module length is approximately one and a half hours. In order to receive the earlier registration pass time, you must spend at least 45 minutes completing the online module. You do not need to complete it all at once; if you exit and log back in at a later time, the module will make note of where you left off.

The transfer module is not a replacement for attending an online Transfer Orientation session. Instead, it provides an important foundation for students to build upon and refer back to during their online orientation experience.

See fees & billing for detailed information on the fees that you will be charged for Transfer Orientation and the application for a fee reduction.


UCSB Transfer Student Module - available June 1


Fall Course Registration

Course registration does not take place during the online Transfer Orientation sessions. Completion of the Transfer Student Module will enable you to register early for your fall classes; your registration appointment time on GOLD will be moved up to a date in mid-August after the online sessions have taken place. The deadline to complete the transfer module and receive an earlier registration pass time is August 2nd. No exceptions will be made to this deadline.


Please note that continuing students register for their classes before incoming students, so your first choice of courses may not always be available. All students will be able to register for a full load of courses appropriate for their first quarter at UCSB.
