Note: The Host campus manages the student’s financial aid. If you are a financial aid recipient, you must have your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) sent to the host campus by listing their school code on your FAFSA. You may make this change on the FAFSA website at www.fafsa.ed.gov/.

Graduate Students: Intercampus Exchange Program for Graduate Students (IEPGS)

If approved for IEPGS, enrolled UCSB graduate students may take classes and use many of the facilities at other UC campuses. Using the IEPGS application process, students seek approval from their home department and the host department at the campus they wish to visit.

Students are limited to taking courses at another UC that are not available at UCSB and are essential to their degree work. Students must have a cumulative grade-point average of at least 3.0 and be in good academic standing.

Approval is granted for one quarter (or semester) at a time but may be renewed. If approved for IEPGS, students must register in a minimum of eight units and pay fees at UCSB to be eligible to register and study at the host campus without additional charge. For further information and IEPGS application, consult the Graduate Division.
