International Students Information


All International students must attend a Center for International Education (CIE) Immigration Clearance Session to avoid visa status problems that may impact attendance at the University.

International freshmen will be required to attend a SOAR workshop in either mid-June or early August - visit When Can I Attend an On-Campus Freshman Workshop? for specific dates.

International students transferring from a community college may attend either a College-Specific or All Majors Workshop - visit SOAR Information for Transfer Students for additional information.

For further CIE information, please contact (562) 985-4106 or visit Immigration Clearance Sessions.
