UCSB Out of State Transfer
Let me start off by saying, regardless of your GPA, or the stature of the institution from which you hail, you will be at a huge disadvantage when attempting to transfer to UCSB as an out of state student. The CA Promise ensures community college students from CA will take precedence. UCSB is more than happy to accept your application fee, but reading your essays will be beyond their capacity, they won’t read them so don’t invest much time. As for their ability to determine transferability of OOS courses, more than likely, even if you are coming from an Ivy League campus they will find some reason to deny the suitability of your coursework. It is a ridiculous process, don’t waste your time and money, there are many better schools out there willing to consider the most qualified applicants.1 replies
