Transfer Edge

Exchange of Scintillating Ideas


All newly admitted UC Santa Barbara transfer students are invited to participate in Transfer Edge.

Applications for 2022 are now closed. Applications open when transfer admissions decisions are released in April 2023, and students are admitted on a rolling basis.

Please note that in order to be eligible, students must submit a Statement of Intent to Register (SIR) prior to applying to Transfer Edge. Without an SIR on record, an application will be rejected and a student will need to apply again in order to be considered for admission.
