Welcome to International Gateways


Since 1975, we have helped thousands of students from over 60 countries who come to San Jose State University for academic, professional, or personal reasons.  Whether you want to improve your English or take SJSU classes, we’re here to help you reach your goals. All of our faculty have advanced degrees and many years of experience. 

Our English program Academic and Test Preparation will remain in the hybrid mode in Summer 2021. The program will consist of online and in-person components. F-1 students who would like to maintain their current Active SEVIS status may continue in the ATP program from either the U.S. or  their home country.

Starting Fall 2021, ATP isgoing back to full-time in-person classes on the SJSU campus. This means that F-1 students who would like to maintain their current Active SEVIS status will need to take their classes on the SJSU campus throughout their enrollment. IG will also be able to issue the Initial I-20 form for new F-1 students to join ATP in person in Fall 2021. Non-F-1 students may enroll on a full and part-time basis from both the U.S. and their home countries.
