Can I arrange my own housing?
Please check with the faculty instructor if you are interested in this possibility.
What if I don’t have my passport yet?
Write in: "obtaining" in the space where it asks if you have a passport, and "applied - number not yet received" in the space where you are asked for your passport number (or type in something to that effect).
Do I have to take the WST?
The WST is the Writing Skills Test, which is a requirement for SJSU and other California State University students. It does not apply to non-SJSU students.
Do we see patients/work in community health, or is it more of an academic format?
FLP courses differ in the amount of hands-on work or service learning opportunities.
Some of the FLPs are service learning projects. The individual FLP instructors may
best answer this question.
