The STEM Transfer Summer Start Program (TSSP) is a collaboration among the Division of Undergraduate Education and The Office of Summer Sessions. The program enriches the student experience, improves preparation for the academic year through specially tailored courses, and provides students with the opportunity to develop knowledge and connections that will help them to succeed in participating STEM majors.
STEM Transfer Summer Start Program is an innovative opportunity designed for newly admitted UCSB Transfer Students majoring in Science, Technology, Engineering or Math (STEM), with a focus on majors in:
Chemistry and Biochemistry
Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology
Psychological and Brain Sciences
TSSP students begin their UCSB experience by enrolling in courses during the six-week Summer Session B:
- Two courses within the STEM major: a designated bridge course designed especially for transfer students within that major and another course that fulfills major requirements
For students accepted into the TSSP, all course and general service fees are fully paid by the Transfer Summer Start Program.
