Deadlines

How Do You Select an Application Round?

You may apply to the application round of the Master of Technology Management (MTM) at the University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB) that is most convenient for you.  We give equal consideration to all applications regardless of the round deadline for which they're submitted.

How Do You Apply for Financial Support?

We offer merit-based financial assistance to all admitted students. If you're a domestic student, however, you may also want to apply to the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to receive financial aid from the U.S. federal government. For the 2018-19 MTM cohort starting in the fall of 2018, you must submit your FAFSA any time between October 1, 2017 and June 30, 2018. For work-study, you must submit your FAFSA by March 2, 2018. For other forms of financial support, please check here.

How Do You Apply for On-Campus Housing?

After being admitted and having submitted your Statement of Intent to Register (SIR) in MTM to the UCSB Graduate Division, you'll need to apply for on-campus housing with the UCSB Housing, Dining, and Auxiliary Enterprises. The deadline to apply for on-campus housing is May 15, 2018. 

How Do You Apply for a Student Visa?

If you're an international student, you'll need to apply for a student visa after being admitted and having submitted your SIR in MTM to the UCSB Graduate Division. To do so, you'll need to show that you have the funds to support your studies by completing and uploading a financial form and supporting documents using the UCSB International Students Portal. You must upload your documents to the UCSB Office of International Students and Scholars (OISS) as soon as possible but no later than August 1, 2018. For more information, please contact UCSB OISS.
