UC Santa Barbara Division of Professional and Continuing Education has several discount opportunities that are available for students. However, discounts may only be used one at a time (discounts may not be combined). Please always check the course page for specific discount policy stipulations and deadlines.

To qualify, enrollment must be paid in full by the early bird fee deadline, the 15th of the month before the beginning of the quarter. Early Bird Deadlines for each quarter:
- Fall: September 15

Companies or employers who enroll and pay for four or more participants in the same professional development course at the same time may receive a 25% discount off the standard enrollment fee. Online enrollment is not available for group affiliation discounts. To receive your discount, please send an email with your phone number and email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
