It is the policy of San José City College (SJCC) to select a representative number of international students for admission each semester. International student application forms may be obtained year-round; however, the application and other required documentation must be submitted by July 15 for the fall semester and by November 15 for the spring semester. Applications received after these dates are reviewed on a case-by-case basis.
International students are required to pay the non-resident tuition, enrollment fees, capital outlay fee, transportation fee, and health fees at time of registration. SJCC also requires all international students to purchase and subscribe to the health insurance plan selected by the San José/Evergreen Community College District. SJCC does not accept any other U.S. or foreign-based insurance plans. Only students who meet certain eligibility criteria may request a waiver by completing a health insurance waiver form and providing required proof by the first day of each semester. Within the first month of the semester, students are required to submit proof of tuberculosis clearance and MMR immunization. All international students must follow United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) guidelines as well as SJCC's International Student Program policies.
Prospective students interested in attending SJCC should request an International Student Application form from the International Student Program office located in GE-118 or by accessing it online at the program’s webpage.
