San Francisco State University considers applications and accepts qualified applicants for admission to the university according to the International Student Application Calendar. Applications for the Fall semester are accepted November 1 to March 1. The university's ability to accept applications after March 1 will be determined by an assessment of resources available at that time. Applications for Fall may be obtained in September. Applications for Spring semester are accepted August 1-31. Applications for Spring may be obtained in June.
Priority in admission is given to residents of California. There is little likelihood of nonresident applicants (including international students) being admitted to impacted majors.
All students on F-1 and J-1 visas must be formally admitted and enrolled in a declared major (undergraduate) or in a classified graduate degree program (post-baccalaureate). They may not be enrolled in the university in non-degree or unclassified status.
The following is an estimate of the cost of one year's attendance as a full-time student:

International students who are outside of the United States, upon receipt of the San Francisco State University Form I-20 or Form IAP-66, should secure a non-immigrant student (F or J) visa. The College of Extended Learning is also authorized under federal law to enroll non-immigrant alien students. Subsequent to admission, international students must be enrolled continuously every semester and carry a full course of study (twelve units for undergraduates and eight units for graduates).
Health Insurance. International students (F and J visas) are required to show evidence of health insurance coverage in order to be permitted to register for courses. Renewals are checked each semester in order to re-register, unless the insurance policy is purchased annually. For additional information, students should contact the Student Health Service at 338-1932.
