Modification Petition

Modification for Students with Prior International Experience

International students and students who have substantial international experience within 5 years of entering San Jose State University may petition the college for a modification of the international experience requirement. Examples of substantial international experience may include (but are not limited to): international service in the Peace Corps or other volunteer organization; schooling, military service, or work experience abroad. 

Students whose modification petition is approved are not required to study abroad but must register for a one-unit online seminar course, APSC 198ITL, where they will engage in reflection and analysis of their prior international experience. APSC198ITL is offered in Fall and Spring semester.
