Attention UCSB Students

Current UCSB matriculated students eligible for financial aid may need to maintain a minimum of 12 academic units to retain eligibility. Please note that professional units from TMP X111 do not count toward this minimum.

While TMP X111 units may count toward graduation requirements, they will not affect your overall GPA.

To earn degree or unit credit for courses taken through UCSB Professional and Continuing Education, students must order an official transcript from Extension upon course completion and have it sent to the UCSB Office of Admissions at

For questions about this process, please contact the advising team for either the College of Letters and Science or the College of Engineering.

The program can be completed in as little as 3 quarters, but it is generally recommended to spread the coursework over two academic years.
