Resources for International Graduate Students
Join the International Spartan Community
San José State University is home to the largest population of international students in the California State University system. We hope you will explore the resources we have in place at the university to support your academic, personal and professional growth as well as help you connect with other international students and domestic students.
International graduate students should become familiar with their steps to enrollment to ensure a smooth start to their educational career at SJSU.
ISSS centralizes immigration advising resources and co-curricular support programming for international students and scholars to enhance their experience in the United States and help them become well-integrated into the SJSU community. Contact ISSS at (408) 924-5920 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
International Gateways offers high-quality English language programs, cultural experiences, and support services to international students, professionals, and visitors at SJSU who want to develop communication skills and strategies for success in a global community.
As an international student, you have unique circumstances due to work authorization and employment eligibility. Check out the SJSU Career Center for resources to develop your career through workshops, advising, and support groups.
We are excited to welcome you to San José! Learn about getting around the city using public transportation, finding groceries and restaurants, South Bay attractions, and more.
The Way to San José pathway was designed for beginning international graduate students in selected programs who may not be able to be physically present in fall 2020 and spring 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The pathway provides an online experience as an on-ramp to arriving on our Silicon Valley campus when you are able to do so. Selecting this program allows you to move closer to graduation and a career. Please check this page periodically to find out what the Way to San José program will look like in Fall 2021. We will post updates once we know more about programs that may be able to offer flexible courses in the fall to accommodate international graduate students starting their programs abroad.
