Students go through a variety of developmental stages during their first year of college. The most crucial one is moving from dependence to independence. As students make this transition, it’s vital to keep abreast of what is going on in their lives. It is important for your student to be the primary source of information that you receive.
Students will practice and ultimately learn to define their boundaries and take responsibility for their actions. The number of options and opportunities seems limitless and students are forced to choose between right and wrong decisions. Tobacco and smoke products are not allowed anywhere on campus.
Your student’s safety is our number one priority, and we do our best to protect students from harm. Residence Halls have self-locking doors, peepholes, smoke detectors, front desk attendants, and layers of student and UCSB professional on-call staff who are available for after-hours assistance.
Many students transition from a structured lifestyle at home to an unstructured lifestyle at college. They set their own schedules for sleeping and eating for the first time. Developing consistent sleeping and eating patterns is the key to wellness. Parents can remind students of the reasons they are in college and what they aspire to accomplish.
College often proves more difficult than expected because there is less official structure to the academic rigor. Parents can help by encouraging students to create study schedules, including visiting professor’s office hours, and adhere to them. This can go a long way toward supporting your student’s academic success.

The UCSB payment page uses Google's reCAPTCHA system as a fraud prevention measure.

This is completely out of UCSB's control.
