Graduating Seniors

If you will finish your undergraduate coursework while abroad, and do not intend to return to UCSB please take the following into consideration: Your grades may take up to 90 days to be posted to your transcript.  You cannot declare candidacy on GOLD until that time.  This means that your diploma will actually be dated 1-2 quarters after you return, depending on the program.  Example: students who complete their requirements during spring term abroad cannot declare candidacy until summer or often fall quarter. 
You may be assigned pass times for the following quarter and receive a bill from BARC.  This is done just in case students find they need to return to complete their degree.  Do not pay this bill or register for courses if you do not intend to return to UCSB.  If you do need to return to UCSB, even for just 1 course, you must take a minimum of 12 units to fulfill the residency requirement.
