The Summer Transitional Enrichment Program (STEP) is a one-week summer residential program for incoming frosh students in the Educational Opportunity Program (EOP). The purpose of STEP is to facilitate the transition of EOP students to UCSB. During STEP students receive an introduction to college-level courses and course work. Workshops, lectures and other programs provide opportunities for students to learn outside the classroom. Students discover ways to enrich their college experience and cultivate a sense of belonging to the UCSB community.
