International Student Orientation in-person

Please arrive early to make sure that we start on time. This is a mandatory orientation as we will be going over important information regarding your international student status, and you must attend the whole session to count towards priority registration. Lunch will be served. If you have not given us a copy of your Visa, Passport, and I-94 in the application you sent (for students from their home country), please bring them so I can have a copy for your file. Also, wear comfortable shoes as we will be walking through campus on that day. If you are arriving by car, you can find free parking on the street or purchase a parking pass in the student lots for $3.

 MMR/TB Immunization Clearance

International students are required to have proof of immunity to Measles, Mumps and Rubella (MMR). This may be in form of proof of vaccination with MMR vaccine or a blood test (titer) that confirms immunity. Proof of immunity (in English) can be submitted if you recieved these vaccinations in your home country. One dose of MMR is adequate for an adult. Students that are in the health care provider fields are at a higher risk and need documentation of two doses.

Tuberculosis (TB) clearance is also required and can be assessed through a skin test or a blood test. (The blood test is recommended by the Santa Clara County Public Health Department for clients with a history of the BCG vaccine). Note, TB clearance can only be accpeted if conducted within the last year.

TB tests are FREE. TB Blood test, MMR vaccine and MMR titer can be obtained for a fee through the Student Health Services at SJCC. The fees can be reimbursed through filing a claim with the international health insurance provided by the International Student Program.

Tuition & Fees

International students are ineligible to enroll in a payment plan, as your fees must be paid in order to be registered on SEVIS and obtain your “Continued Attendance I-20.”


We will give you your I-20’s after the semester starts, as we will need to register students on SEVIS after the start date and verify tuition has been paid and you have submitted all required documents. If you need your I-20 for an emergency or Driver’s License, you can pick up a temporary I-20 before the start of the semester from the office.
