 The Orientation Programs & Parent Services office conducts new student and parent orientation each summer. New Student Orientation is an opportunity for students to begin the transition to college and learn more about university policies, processes and services. Orientation   sessions are available for both freshmen and transfer students.

 Attending Parent Orientation with your student is a great way to learn more about all that UCSB has to offer. In addition to academic, social, and cultural opportunities for your student, you will also learn more about your role as a Gaucho Parent and how to best support your student during the transition to college life and throughout their academic career.
