Welcome to International Programs & Global Engagement: International Student & Scholars

Our office provides information and assistance to (i) F-1 or J-1 international students attending Cal State Fullerton; (ii) CSUF students planning to study abroad; and (iii) exchange visitors including research scholars and visiting professors. Our website includes resources, such as, arriving to CSUF, travelling overseas, employment, health insurance, scholarships, maintaining F-1 or J-1 visa statuses, letters and forms, and much more. Because immigration details can become quite complex, we invite you to come to our office during Walk In hours to see an advisor or by individual appointment.
