The GOLD System (Gaucho On-Line Data) enables students to search for
open classes by instructor, day and time, requirements satisfied, etc.;
register for classes; change their addresses; view registration
information including class schedule, grades, and registration
appointment times; check fees and financial aid information; and order
official transcripts. The GOLD System is accessible at my.ucsb.edu.
There are computers available for student use in a number of
locations across campus (e.g., the Davidson Library and the University
Center). These can be used for the GOLD system, student email, and some
other computer applications.
