OFFICE OF INTERNATIONAL PROGRAMSThe Office of International Programs (OIP) is the primary office on campus meeting the many needs of prospective international students interested in applying for admission to SFSU; degree-seeking international students; visiting international students, faculty, and scholars; and SFSU students and faculty wishing to work or study abroad.
OIP has a professional, multi-lingual staff who are sensitive to the needs and concerns of international students and scholars and U.S. students seeking an overseas experience. The staff are well informed about community programs, services, and cross-cultural issues and are dedicated to assisting international students and scholars in any way likely to make their stay at SFSU as enjoyable and rewarding as possible. They are equally committed to helping SFSU students to identify and participate in appropriate overseas study and travel experiences. OIP is open throughout the year for advising and administrative services.
Dedicated to supporting international exchange, OIP jointly facilitates the international scholarly movement of faculty to and from SFSU. OIP assists in bringing visiting scholars to the campus through a variety of services, including orientation and advising on immigration and personal matters after their arrival. OIP is the only office authorized to issue immigration documentation to enable these scholars to come to SFSU on J-1 visas. OIP also assists SFSU faculty members who seek to engage in scholarly activities overseas. The Fulbright Scholar program is now housed at OIP, and in this regard, help with application preparation and advising is provided.
