How to Enroll

Enrolling in FSSP is simple! All newly admitted UC Santa Barbara first-year students are invited to participate in FSSP.

Already submitted your application? Please allow 2–3 business days for our team to review your submission! Check your UCSB email regularly for all program-related communications, including updates about your enrollment!


Steps to Enroll:

Complete your Statement of Intent to Register (SIR). This must be submitted before you submit your FSSP enrollment application. Without an SIR on record, an enrollment application will be rejected and a student will need to apply again to be considered for admission.

Complete your Statement of Legal Residence (SLR).

Activate your UCSBnetID and UCSB email account. To do so, sign in to the UCSB Identity Manager. Learn more about accessing your UCSB email account. Once you've applied, you can expect to receive program related communications in your UCSB email inbox. 

Complete two FAFSA forms! To be considered for financial aid for FSSP, you must complete a FAFSA for 2023 – 2024 by June 30th, 2024. Please note that this is in addition to the 2024 – 2025 FAFSA, which provides aid beginning in Fall 2024.  

Fill out and submit the enrollment application. Please note that you will need to sign up for an account in order to complete a summer enrollment application (we recommend using your UCSB email to set up this account). Enrollment for the 2024 program opens April 15th.
