UC Santa Barbara Admissions Webinars

If you cannot make it to campus for an information session, join us online for weekly UC Santa Barbara Informational webinars. These 60-minute sessions cover admissions, student life and campus resources. They are presented by UCSB admissions counselors.

UC Application and Personal Statement Webinars
Are you a freshman applicant for fall 2015? UCSB Admissions Counselors are hosting two unique webinars to walk prospective freshman applicants through the UC application and/or the UC personal statement.

  • The UC Application webinar is a step-by-step tutorial which will help you understand how to fill out the application. Webinars are hosted weekly on Tuesdays at 4 p.m. PST.
  • The UC Personal Statement webinar provides an inside look at how UC Admissions uses the personal statement in the freshman selection process. In addition, Admissions Counselors will share what makes a great personal statement and what you need to avoid! Webinars are hosted weekly on Wednesdays at 4 p.m. PST and Thursdays at 2 p.m. PST.
