What is Online Transfer Orientation?


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

UCSB Transfer Orientation

Orientation is an important way to begin your academic career at UCSB. Transfer Orientation is a one-day remote program where you'll have the opportunity to:

  • Meet with department advisors in your academic major
  • Learn about the academic environment and undergraduate research
  • Become acquainted with other new students
  • Explore ways to get involved in campus activities
  • Learn about campus life from current UCSB students
  • Become familiar with all that UCSB has to offer

UCSB Parent & Family Orientation

The people who are close to you are probably curious about UCSB and would like to be of support to you. We have planned a program for your family which will include learning about campus services, and talking with administrators, academic representatives, and other students. The more your family understands about the college experience, the more helpful they will be to you during your transition.

The Transfer Parent & Family Orientation is included in the $110 student orientation fee. There is no additional cost for parents and family members to participate in the remote program.

Be sure to include any parents, family members, or guests on your online reservation form if they will attend the remote session.
