Tuition is paid by all students registered at UCSB to cover a variety of educational costs as determined by the Regents. With the approval of the appropriate college dean, undergraduate students may obtain deficit load (or part-time) status prior to the beginning of the quarter. Approval is based upon verifiable reasons of employment, health, or family responsibility. Under certain conditions, reduced tuition may be available through the Office of the Registrar for undergraduate students who have advance permission to carry 10 or fewer units a quarter.
