2021 Transfer Orientation

Welcome and congratulations on your acceptance to UCSB! We’re the Undergraduate Advisors in the Psych and Brain Sciences Department. We are located at Psych East 1814.

This year, our department will be hosting a virtual orientation via Zoom in order to answer your questions about the transition to UCSB.  The four modules below will supply you with all the information you will need to know in your preparation for transfer.  Due to the incredibly large transfer student cohorts we admit every year, we DO NOT have the ability to offer one-on-one orientations or guidance.  

Before attending online orientation, we require that you watch the below modules and come to the virtual orientation prepared with questions.  We will NOT be spending time going over the entire process described in the modules

  1. Module 1 - Overview and Welcome
  2. Module 2 - City College to UC
  3. Module 3 - How to Enroll in Classes
  4. Module 4 - How to Prepare for Orientation

You can reach us by email advising@psych.ucsb.edu. Please email us from your umail account
and include your name, perm number, current major, and if applicable, major you are switching
into. When physical classes are in session, we offer walk-in advising and appointments (note we
do not take appointments the first two weeks of the quarter but offer walk-in advising during
that time).
