You can enroll in academic courses during the enrollment period of each quarter. There is no opportunity to enroll in academic courses pre-arrival.
During the first 3 weeks of the quarter, students visit the classes they want to take. You can digitally send the Enrollment Authorization Form to get enrollment approval. For the correct contact for each department, please review the list here.
When the form is completed, it will automatically be sent to our office formal enrollment. Because you pay a per-quarter flat tuition fee, there will be no individual course payments.
- Search for UCSB Academic courses in the quarter of study.
- Send your enrollment form to the correct recipient for approval (department advisor, or Professor.)
- Once approved, you will be formally enrolled by a Student Services advisor and notified via email.
- Send your Gauchospace form to the professor to be added to the course site.
