Transfer Conditions of Admission

Fall 2017

We congratulate you on your academic achievements, which have resulted in your provisional admission to UC Santa Barbara. Please be aware that this decision was based on information about your academic progress that you reported in your application and application update. Your offer of admission should be viewed as a contract that carries with it your responsibility for completing all courses you indicated on your application as “in progress” or “planned” and for maintaining the level of performance reported in your application. Our purpose in emphasizing these conditions is to avoid misunderstandings that could disrupt your enrollment at a later date.

“Provisional admission” means that your admission to UC Santa Barbara will be official only after you have completed the requirements below. If you think you will not be able to meet the provisions of this contract, or if you do not understand the conditions, contact the Office of Admissions immediately for further advice.

Please read the conditions carefully before submitting your Statement of Intent to Register (SIR). Submitting your SIR signifies that you understand the conditions, acknowledge that these obligations must be met in a timely manner, and recognize that failure to do so will invalidate your offer of admission. By submitting your SIR you consent to receive communications and documents electronically, including the 1098-T tax form. A paper copy may be requested if needed. Your admission to UC Santa Barbara is subject to cancellation if:
  • the information you submitted on your application and/or by written or verbal communication with our office does not match official documentation;
  • all requirements listed have not been met.

Conditions of Admission

Because your admission has been based on the information you reported in your University of California application, we expect that you will do the following:
  1. Maintain at least an overall GPA of 3.0. Complete all courses indicated as “in progress” or “planned” with no grade lower than a “C.” If you earn any grade below “C,” notify the Office of Admissions immediately. Summer may not be used to complete courses projected in your application in other terms. Changes in your overall GPA or your schedule may result in a change in your admission status and/or your eligibility for specific majors.
  2. Notify the Office of Admissions in writing before you make any changes in your “in progress” or “planned” coursework. This includes adding or withdrawing from any courses or enrolling in a college other than those previously indicated in your application.
  3. Submit official transcripts from all institutions that you attended to the Office of Admissions by July 1, 2017. No transcripts may indicate dismissal, probation, or other restrictions. Transcripts are considered official when they are delivered directly from the school. Late or incomplete transcripts may result in the withdrawal of your offer of admission.
  4. Submit your final official high school transcript or full IGETC certification to the Office of Admissions by July 15, 2017.
  5. Request that official Advanced Placement examination, International Baccalaureate or GCE (A-level) examination results be sent directly from the testing agency to the Office of Admissions by July 15, 2017. Results of exams taken more than one year ago may take longer to receive. Please request official results at least one month prior to the deadline and specify all test dates in your request.
  6. Transcripts of coursework completed outside of the United States must be translated to English and sent in a sealed envelope directly from the institution. We will not accept credential evaluations.
