International Student and Scholar Services (ISSS)

ISSS includes all immigration advising to our F and J visa holders, the International House, and study abroad programs. 

We are excited to announce that SJSU’s College of International and Extended Studies (CIES) has changed its name to the College of Professional and Global Education (CPGE).

The new title will better align with the mission of the college, the university, and its programs to connect the educational and workforce needs of the University, the region, and the world in service to our domestic and international students. Our programs and services will continue to provide professional and global opportunities for academic and career advancement.
