To access GauchoSpace for your professional course(s), do the following:
- If you are enrolled in a course that uses GauchoSpace, you will receive an e-mail with the directions for creating your UCSBNetID and password through Identity Manager. DO NOT try to create your UCSBNetID and/or access GauchoSpace until you receive this e-mail.
- Once you have created your UCSBNetID and password, you must log in to GauchoSpace to activate your account. When you log in to GauchoSpace for the first time you will not have access to your course. Once your account is activated you will be added to your course and you will receive an e-mail from your instructor once the course is open and live for you to access.
**Please Note: Any questions regarding access to GauchoSpace should be sent to student services through the Help Center. UCSB Professional and Continuing Education handles access to GauchoSpace for all professional courses.
