----------

Applying to CCS is a two-step process. You must apply both to UCSB and to CCS. The CCS application is separate from and in addition to the UCSB application.

STEP 1: APPLY TO UCSB

If you're not already enrolled at UCSB, and you haven't already applied to UCSB, you will need to submit the UC Undergraduate Application, the standard form used to apply to any UC campus, available on the web at the University of California Admissions homepage prior to applying to CCS. Follow the instructions and the dates indicated so that you meet the deadlines.

STEP 2: APPLY TO CCS

CCS has transitioned to an online application to expedite our admissions process, the link to which can be found in the major-specific instructional pages linked below.  Although CCS accepts applications year round, please submit your CCS application by the major-specific deadline for priority consideration of admission during the 2015-16 academic year.  Major-specific deadlines and application requirements can be found below.

CCS Applicants may apply to only one CCS major. If you are interested in double majoring in CCS Computing and CCS Mathematics, please contact CCS Student Affairs Officer Hannah Magnusson at hannah.magnusson@ccs.ucsb.edu.
