Do all services require pre-enrollment?

CLAS drop-in services are available for registered UCSB students and do not require pre-enrollment. See program tabs for corresponding program schedules and locations.

Why do students utilize CLAS?

Over half of UCSB undergraduates utilize CLAS services every year. Benefits include increased confidence, improved grades, and completion of majors and degrees. CLAS covers the span of lower division course-specific instructional support in economics, engineering, math and the sciences, academic skills development, graduate school preparation, ESL, foreign language, and writing services.

Can CLAS provide a tutor referral or list of tutors available for hire?

Sorry but University policy does not allow CLAS to provide private tutoring or private tutoring referral services.
