Our international studies programs are designed for individuals who would be attending courses in the U.S. on a student visa. The application process differs based on whether you are currently living in the U.S. or abroad.
1. Download the International Student Application Form.
2. Fill out the form. We will create a student account for you to which you can submit the $150 payment via credit card. Potential certificate students will also be charged the international student advising fee of $2,000. The advising fee is refundable if enrollment is cancelled up to three business days prior to the orientation session. A $200 cancellation fee will apply. You also have the option to pay by check. Make a check payable to "UC Regents" and mail it in or drop it off with your application.
3. Scan and email a financial statement from your bank account or a sponsor's bank account showing that you have sufficient funds to support yourself during your studies in the United States. The 9-month professional certificate programs require financial resources of at least $25,000. The cost of tuition varies depending on the certificate you choose. Total course and materials fees for a program are approximately $10,000. This does not include books.
