UCSB Sends Close to 20,000 Acceptance Letters

UCSB has mailed out acceptance letters to 19,721 high school seniors out of a total 46,700 applicants (the second largest applicant pool in UCSB history), and expects around 3,900 to enroll in the fall. Because the university absorbed 1,500 more freshman and transfer students last year than the campus expected, that 3,900 target figure is 700 less this year. The university also enacted a wait list for the first time, placing on it 2,428 freshman applicants who will hear back in mid May. Overall, the UC system received a record 134,029 applications—100,320 from freshman applicants and 33,709 from transfer hopefuls.
