International Students

Welcome to the International Students section of the IESC website!

It is important to maintain a valid student status during your stay in the United States and at California State University, Northridge (CSUN). This section includes information for F-1 students and J-1 students that will help you better understand federal immigration regulations affecting you and your dependent family members. In addition, there are important on-campus and off-campus resources, as well as information that can help you during an emergency. We also provide opportunities for you to connect with other international students and the campus community.

Immigration rules can vary depending on your particular case or situation. For clarification and further information, please come to International and Exchange Student Center (IESC) to discuss your questions with a Foreign Student Advisor

Please note that regulations are complex and subject to change. It is your responsibility to keep current of changes via the IESC website and through updates sent to your CSUN email account.
