A valid F-1 student visa is required for entry into the United States. To learn more about the necessary steps to obtain your F-1 visa, and/or to transfer your I-20 record if you are already in the U.S. in valid F-1 status, visit the International Student Center (ISC) website.

SDSU requires all enrolled international students to have adequate health insurance that meets the SDSU F-1 requirements before the first day of the semester. Review and follow the health insurance information on the ISC website.
All admitted international students living on campus are required to submit the Housing Early Arrival. Check the Housing and Residential Education website to stay updated on how to request Early Arrival.

All students must meet specific immunization requirements, including the university's COVID-19 requirement.
COVID-19 Vaccination and Booster – Due Prior to Your Orientation Date
Prior to attending New Student Orientation, incoming students must provide proof of their COVID-19 vaccine and booster. Log in to the HealtheConnect portal and upload your proof of COVID-19 vaccination and booster. You will not be able to register for fall 2022 courses during New Student Orientation if you have not met this requirement.
Remaining Non-COVID Immunizations – Due Prior to August 18, 2022
Provide proof of your remaining immunizations and complete your Tuberculosis (TB) Risk Assessment prior to August 18, 2022. Review the Immunization Requirements web page ahead of time to review the requirements that apply to you and begin working with your healthcare professional to ensure you have completed all of the required immunizations. Make sure you have acceptable proof of completed immunizations available for submission. Acceptable proof includes records from your high school, private healthcare provider, local health department, or campus health center. Log in to the HealtheConnect portal and upload your proof of immunizations.
Health Care Insurance
Medical care is an important part of taking care of one's own health and well-being. SDSU Student Health Services (SHS) is a vital program, but it does not cover medical emergencies, after-hours care, a full range of medical specialists, hospital facilities or other medical services provided outside of SHS. In addition, access to SHS does not meet the government mandate for health insurance. Therefore, it is recommended that students arrange with their health plan to have a local primary care physician.
While the University does not provide accident or health insurance coverage to students, we do have services available to assist students with obtaining or utilizing health care. Students can meet with a specialist in the Well-being & Health Promotion Department to learn more about their health insurance, to find local providers who accept their insurance, to learn where to go in an emergency, and to obtain assistance in accessing specialists. Students can also be connected with an Enrollment Specialist if they are looking to obtain health insurance or to better understand their options. To make an appointment call (619) 594-4133 or find out more on the Well-being & Health Promotion website.
All new students are expected to attend New Student Orientation.
When you attend New Student Orientation this summer, you will be provided a preliminary degree evaluation with information about which degree requirements have been satisfied with your transfer courses.
During orientation you will register for fall 2022 classes. You will not be able to register for classes until you have submitted all required transcripts and have cleared any registration holds.
The F-1 student visa requires you to enroll as a full-time student each semester. As an undergraduate student, you must enroll in a minimum of 12 units per semester to meet the visa immigration requirements. However, we recommend you enroll in 15 units per semester to stay on track to complete your degree. Classes in Extended Studies or Open University do not count toward full-time status.
Things to do before attending New Student Orientation:
- Request and submit final official transcripts be sent to SDSU from all colleges attended (if you haven't done so already).
- Visit the How do I get my SDSUcard? website and follow the steps to obtain your SDSUcard. This is REQUIRED FOR ALL STUDENTS.
You can make your reservation online beginning on May 10, 2022 at 10 a.m. PDT. Specific details about New Student Orientation will be available on the Office of New Student and Parent Programs website. For more information, email the Office of New Student and Parent Programs at [email protected].
Information about your basic tuition and fees will be available to you on the Money Matters web page on the Student Account Services website.
Government Sponsored Students
Basic Tuition and Fees will be deferred for government sponsored students who provide a Financial Guarantee Letter from their country's Cultural Mission to Student Account Services.
