Welcome to the International Students section of the IESC website!

It is important to maintain a valid student status during your stay in the US and at CSUN. This section includes information for F-1 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 which can help you during an emergency.

Immigration rules can vary depending on your particular case or situation. For clarification and further information, please come to 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 webmail account.
