Hello International Gauchos!
The Office of International Students and Scholars (OISS) is excited to announce the upcoming launch of UCSBGlobal in February 2021!
WHAT IS UCSBGlobal?
We're glad you asked!✨ It's a new online platform for International Gauchos to use when submitting, reviewing, and tracking requests made to OISS.
UCSBGlobal will revolutionize the way you interact with our office, and simplify life for everyone! With the launch of UCSBGlobal, you'll enjoy:
✅ No more running around campus to collect signatures🏃😅
✅ No more waiting in line for drop-offs or pick-ups ⏳😑
✅ No more printing or scanning of OISS forms 🖨🙅🏻♀️
✅ No more wondering about your request status 🤔❓
✅ ...and much, much more! 🤩✨
Everything will be replaced with UCSBGlobal, a one-stop-shop for all. You will no longer use the International Student Portal or email OISS request forms to firstname.lastname@example.org. Instead, you'll simply log into UCSBGlobal with your UCSB Net ID and submit requests online.
Friday, January 22, 2021: Last day to submit new requests to the OISS Office.
Saturday, January 23, 2021 - February 7, 2021: No new requests accepted while OISS staff implements transition to UCSBGlobal.
February 8th, 2021: First day to begin submitting OISS requests again, but through UCSBGlobal!
(Gaucho Tip: Mark these dates in your calendar!) ✏️📆
Between January 22, 2021 and February 7th, 2021, OISS staff and services will be limited as we implement our transition to UCSBGlobal. Please plan accordingly, and be sure to submit any requests before the 22nd deadline. We apologize for the inconvenience, and thank you in advance for your cooperation!
Please keep an eye out on your UCSB email. We will be sending important reminders, updates, and instructions on how to submit requests using UCSBGlobal. If you feel like you missed anything, you can always check the UCSBGlobal information page.
Trust us, you're going to love it!
