International Student Advising

ISS advising

ISS provides services and advising to international students and scholars attending California State University, Fullerton. Our office can assist you with immigration-related issues, such as maintaining your non-immigrant status, enrollment requirements, international or domestic travel, health insurance and employment authorizations.
