Partial Credit for Spring 2020 Campus-Based Fees

In June of 2020, UC President Janet Napolitano called for all UC campuses to analyze spring 2020 campus-based student fees, and where appropriate and feasible, issue refunds or their equivalents in response to the shift to remote instruction necessitated by public health orders.
 
Following a comprehensive analysis performed with the aid of external accountants, UC Santa Barbara will be issuing financial credits or refunds to UC Santa Barbara students registered during spring 2020. The credits/refunds will range from $32.29 for graduate students to $63.34 for undergraduates. 

On March 15, 2022, refunds for eligible students or recent graduates will be posted to their BARC accounts as a credit. Those with active direct deposit will receive a refund in their bank account as long as there aren’t any other fees outstanding. For those without active direct deposit, the campus will send a check by regular mail to the mailing address listed in GOLD.

The UC Office of the President has published FAQs about the refunds
