International Student Enrollment Steps

Before you enroll in classes, make sure you have completed the International Student Admission Steps.

Not an International Student?

If you are not an international student, then you may need to follow different steps. Find out what type of student you are and get the correct steps for you!

What Type of Student Are You?

Use Guided Self-Placement

Your placement helps you determine which math and English courses you should enroll in.

If you graduated high school in a foreign country, then you should use the guided self-placement process to figure out what English and math courses to take. Contact your designated school official to obtain the guided self-placement link.

After you complete guided self-placement, your placements will be updated in eServices overnight.

  1. From your eServices dashboard, click Academic Records.
  2. Click Placements to view your math and English placements.

Meet With a Counselor

Make an appointment with a counselor to create an education plan.

You should begin planning for your classes as soon as you begin the international student application process. Keep in mind that classes fill up quickly and you should enroll as early as you can.

As an international student, you are required to enroll in and complete 12 units per semester.

Make a Counseling Appointment

Enroll in Classes

You can enroll in classes online via eServices during or after your enrollment appointment window.

You will be assigned an enrollment appointment window, which is the earliest date and time you can enroll in classes. You can find your enrollment appointment time in eServices.

As an international student, you must enroll in classes at ‚Äčthe college that issued you the Form I-20.

Pay Your Fees

Pay your fees soon after you enroll to avoid being dropped.

Your tuition and fees are due soon after you enroll in classes. You may be dropped if your fees are not paid by the fee payment deadline. This is true even if you enroll in a class that starts later in the semester.

You can see how much you owe in eServices. From your dashboard, click Financial Account, then Account Balance.

Complete Orientation

International student orientation gives you important information to help you succeed in college.

There is mandatory international student orientation before the start of each semester. Orientation provides information about your F-1 responsibilities and maintenance of status. It is also an opportunity to meet with other international students.

You will receive an email before the start of the semester with information about the day and time of orientation.
