International Student and Scholar Services (ISSS)



May 21, 2018 - Summer has begun! Taking summer session courses at Sac State? Be sure to check the summer session website for registration, tuition, and deadline details.

March 23, 2018 - SEVP has launched the SEVP Portal. This allows certain students on OPT and STEM OPT to report personal and employer information directly to SEVP. For more information, please refer to IPGE's email sent March 23 and the SEVP Portal announcement and Help Section.



Sacramento State’s International Student and Scholar Services (ISSS) office provides a wide range of services to newly admitted and continuing international (F-1 and J-1 visa) students and visiting scholars.   The office coordinates new international student orientation, provides cultural and social events that allow our students to share their national heritage and get involved, immigration and cultural adjustment advising, tax preparation assistance, and information for on- and off-campus resources.  Our mission is to ensure that all international students are supported in a manner that promotes success.
