(Transfer) What courses should I take? What courses can I take to help me prepare for my time at UCSB?

In the summer, most new transfer students enroll in courses that meet the requirements for their major. Each major has an academic advisor to help new students make the right decisions about enrolling in summer courses.

Please use the Academic Departments & Programs resource page to locate your major department. You may contact the undergraduate academic advisor who can help you plan your course schedule for the summer.
