Our Best Answer - How do I submit my transcript(s)?

Transcripts are not required until after a student has been admitted.

After a student has been admitted, official high school transcripts (and transcripts from any colleges or universities the student has attended) are due on July 1. Final transcripts should be sent directly from the high school/college and must show the exact date of graduation ("Class of 2018" is not acceptable). Transfers are also required to submit a final high school transcript unless the student is submitting a full IGETC certification from a community college.

Transcripts are considered official when they are delivered directly from the school to:

Office of Admissions
UC Santa Barbara
1210 Cheadle Hall
Santa Barbara, CA 93106

UCSB also accepts electronic transcripts through Naviance, Parchment, Credential Solutions, eSCRIP-SAFE and eTranscript CA credentialing services.

Students can check their Applicant Status Portal to view the status of their transcripts. After transcripts are sent, please allow 7-10 business days of processing time before the transcript status is updated in the portal.
