Resources for Parents & Students
Welcome students and parents!
Thank you for coming this far, and consulting our website. By seeking out college-preparation information, you are taking an important step on the path to higher education. The links on “Students and Parents” will help you to chart your pathway to college in terms of:
- Courses you need to complete,
- Examinations you need to pass,
- Grades you will need to earn for admission to the University of California.
These links will:
- Help you to understand California’s system of higher education
- Connect you with people and programs in your school that can help you succeed
- Suggest strategies to prepare for college from pre-school (yes, pre-school!) through the 12th grade
- Alert you to critical dates, deadlines, and other “signposts” along the way
Preparing for college involves understanding and acting on a lot of information. Please remember that UCSB staff are here to support you throughout your planning and preparation process.
