Can a transfer student from a community college graduate in two years?

Yes.  However, problems may arise when the preparatory courses in chemistry, physics and mathematics have not been completed before transfer to UCSB. It is strongly recommended that all preparatory courses be completed before transfer insofar as possible. If the preparatory work has been completed, then transfer students can readily graduate in two years. If the preparatory work has not been completed, then it may not be possible to take the upper division courses required for the degree in a timely manner to graduate in two years.
