UCSB Selection Criteria

The University makes every effort to provide a place on one of its campuses for all California resident applicants who meet the minimum eligibility requirements and file an application during the appropriate filing period. If the number of applicants exceeds the spaces available—as is often the case—the campus uses criteria that exceed the minimum requirements to select students. Meeting the minimum requirements, therefore, may not be enough to gain admission.
