Our office is committed to serving the needs of applicants from all over the world. Students from more than 93 countries join our student body of over 36,000 to create a vibrant, international campus in the multicultural community of Northridge. Northridge is located in the sunny San Fernando Valley, a suburb of Los Angeles.

Our international admissions staff assists prospective students with questions concerning their application status, evaluates academic records for undergraduate and graduate applicants, and issues notices of eligibility. The office is also responsible for the issuance of the initial and transfer form I-20 or DS-2019 which will enable the applicant to study in the United States on an F-1 or a J-1 visa for a period of time specific to their degree objective.
