Transfer Summer Start Program (TSSP)

What is the Transfer Summer Start Program?

Transfer Summer Start is one component of the larger Transfer Start Program. Both programs provide a bridge into specific majors. During Summer 2018, eligible students can enroll in online transfer start courses in Communication and Economics.

For students who are accepted, all course and general service fees are fully paid by the program.

Who is Eligible?

Eligible students are evaluated by each participating department and invited to the program shortly after they have been admitted to UCSB; academic achievement and financial need are given high priority. TSSP is by invitation. Initial invitations will come from the Office of Summer Sessions. Once students are notified about acceptance into the TSSP, they will be put into contact with appropriate departmental advisors, as well as with other relevant offices at UCSB. 

Why Participate?

By participating in the program, transfer students can:

  • Develop relationships with faculty and graduate student mentors
  • Learn about ways of thinking and practicing within specific disciplines
  • Learn about research, mentoring, and other opportunities for transfer students
