Welcome to BARC, the Billing Accounts Receivable Collections unit.
BARC is the UCSB campus centralized receivable system. This computerized system produces a monthly statement for any amounts owed to the university, such as registration fees, campus housing charges, phone bills, library fines, and student health services, to name a few.
The Billing-Accounts Receivable Office consolidates all sundry debts owed to the University for charges that may be incurred through any University department, identifies delinquent debts, and disburses financial aid.

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) clearly defines a student’s right to privacy and confidentiality, strictly limiting the disclosure of information from student records. While various levels of restriction exist, some allowing the release of "directory" information (name, current address, telephone number, e-mail address, major, dates of attendance, degrees and honors received, the most recent previous educational institution attended and enrolled units), UCSB's ability to release financial/billing information to any person other than the student in question is severely limited by FERPA. In our experience, the persons most likely to want financial/billing information about a student are a student’s parents or guardians. If you wish to permit such a release, please download, complete and sign the form Waiver of Privacy Rights for Billing Information. Then submit it to the Billing Office, 1212 SAASB, Santa Barbara, CA 93106-2003.
