UC Santa Barbara General CatalogUniversity of California, Santa Barbara


Each quarter every UCSB student must register in courses and pay fees and any other outstanding financial obligations; each step must be completed at a specific time. Students use GOLD to enroll on the web. Details of the registration procedure can be found on the Office of the Registrar's  Registration & Enrollment web page.

When students are admitted to UCSB, their admission is provisional and contingent upon receipt of final official transcripts that verify information supplied in the admission application. Students who fail to provide the Office of Admissions (undergraduate students) or Graduate Division (graduate students) with final transcripts, as well as students whose transcripts fail to verify information supplied in the admission application, may have their admission revoked. Admission may be revoked even if students have enrolled in, attended, and completed classes at UCSB.

The failure of a student to complete the steps involved in enrollment by the specified deadlines will constitute presumptive evidence that the student has withdrawn from the university. An eligible student who wishes to resume study will be required to file an application for readmission and pay the associated nonrefundable fee. For information concerning readmission, please see the Absence and Withdrawal section of this chapter.

Undergraduate students who are subject to academic disqualification may not officially enroll until and unless they are reinstated on academic probation by the dean of their college or school. Students with outstanding financial obligations to the university have not completed enrollment until their financial obligations have been met or they have enrolled in a payment plan through the Office of Billing, Accounts Receivable, and Collections (BARC).
