Information about Study Abroad for DACA students

(Posted 12.02.2016)

In the College of International and Extended Studies, we understand the importance of studying abroad. Currently, due to possible changes in immigration policies, we believe that it would be prudent for DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) students to substitute international experiences with domestic immersion experiences within the United States rather than leaving the country. The GEI staff will be working with the Colleges and departments to identify these "study-abroad-at-home" experiences within the U.S. On campus, there are many opportunities to engage in international experiences including participation in the Global Student Network, living at the International House, pursuing recognition of your international involvement through the Global Leadership Advancement Center (GLAC), and volunteering in the community locally. If you have questions or concerns, please e-mail the SJSU Global Education and Initiatives Office.

Information about Zika Virus

(Posted 02.12.2016)

San Jose State University's Departments of Global Education and Initiatives and International Student & Scholar Services, recognize that the news regarding the spread of the Zika virus may be at the forefront of discussion for SJSU students and parents preparing to study outside of the United States. We would like to assure you all that we are closely monitoring and following new developments in regards to the spread of the Zika virus.

As each student is aware of their own personal health history and may have specific concerns regarding the destination where they will be traveling, we encourage each individual to seek advice on Zika from qualified health personnel, or from national or international reputable health agencies such as the CDC, WHO, etc.
