2023 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 transfer orientation sessions 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, so please try to attend.

Before attending orientation, we recommend that you watch the modules below and come 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 - PSY Course Registrations Pointers
  4. Module 4 - How to Prepare for Orientation

We require all incoming transfers to fill out our Incoming Transfer Form.If you have any questions, you can reach us by email at advising@psych.ucsb.edu. Please email us from your UCSB account and include your name and perm #. We also offer walk-in advising.
