International Admission Applications

California community colleges welcome qualified international students to their academic, vocational, and technical programs. California community college staff feel that the presence of international students enriches the academic environment for all of their students in addition to providing a quality education for students from other parts of the world. Many colleges request the following of international students:

  • International student application
  • Certification of finances
  • Proof of English competency

Most colleges have online information related to international students. Admissions office staff at each California community college can answer questions about international students.


Each year at our 116 colleges, 1.8 million students from all over the world build their career skills, prepare for transfer to four-year colleges and universities, or simply enrich their lives through learning.
