Other Pages In UCSB Professional and Continuing Education

The Open University Program is a cooperative arrangement between the campus and UCSB Professional and Continuing Education (PaCE) that enables individuals to enroll in undergraduate and graduate courses on a space-available basis without being formally admitted to UCSB. Open University is open to community members, including UCSB students who are unable to continue on the matriculation track. . Open University is ideal for those who are considering returning to school, preparing to enter UCSB, seeking to complete a few units to graduate, or desiring to take specific UCSB courses for professional or personal enrichment reasons.. Course credits are recorded at UCSB (PaCE). If accepted toward a degree, UCSB coursework completed through Open University at PaCE in Fall 2000 or later will be used by the UCSB Registrar to calculate a student’s UC grade-point-average.
