Planning for Winter Quarter

Winter Quarter – Academic Instruction
Like most counties throughout California, Santa Barbara County was reclassified this week into the most-restrictive purple tier in the State’s COVID-19 reopening system. Consistent with the updated public health guidelines, and given the current trend of increased COVID-19 cases, UC Santa Barbara will join other UC campuses in continuing to offer most of our undergraduate and graduate courses via remote instruction for the winter quarter

While most graduate classes will continue to be offered remotely, some face-to-face courses are scheduled for the winter. 

Course information for the winter quarter has been posted to Gold. 

Stop the Spread
Since the fall quarter began, our campus health and medical experts have significantly increased our testing capacity to more than 6,000 tests per week, and have substantially decreased the wait time on test results. Current plans will increase our testing capacity even further in the near future.
