CALI Training

Get ready for CALI! CALI stands for California, and it also stands for Cultural Awareness, Laws, and Immigration--issues that have special importance for international students.

If you are an incoming international student, you are mandated (required) by Federal Immigration Policy to attend OISS CALI Training. You will get a lot of important information, and we want you to make some friends and enjoy your first official program at UCSB.CALI Training is a program with 2 parts, one online and one in-person.


CALI Online is an online course help you prepare before you arrive. It is required. There is a quiz at the end and it will prepare you for In-Person CALI Training.

CALI Online for 2019 is found on GauchoSpace!


The required In Person CALI Training is your chance to meet people and ask questions. You'll meet other UCSB students and have fun, too!
