UC Santa Barbara typically mails out invitations for the Chancellor’s Receptions (in California and some out-of-state locations) to freshman applicants in early February. Since 2017, the campus seems to only invite admitted freshmen to the receptions (prior to 2017, invited OOS students were admitted but CA students were hit or miss). If you received an invitation, congratulations!!! If not, keep reading.
UC Santa Barbara has already set up the Chancellor’s Receptions RSVP site and invited students appear to already be loaded into the system (when you try to RSVP, you’ll either get a confirmation, meaning you were invited, or your Perm Number/Last Name won’t be recognized, meaning you were not invited). If you are anxious to find out (I haven’t heard anyone mentioning receiving the mailed invitations), you can try the RSVP site.
There is absolutely NO NEED TO PANIC if you don’t receive an invitation (or the RSVP site doesn’t recognize your Perm Number/Last Name). Only a very small number of students are invited to these receptions. Regular freshman decisions will come out on March 17, 2020.
