About ISP

De Anza College Fountain

The office of International Student Programs (ISP) is the primary office on campus that serves the needs of De Anza's international (F-1 Visa) student population. Degree-seeking international students are encouraged to contact this office and visit our campus.  ISP also serves many international students who have already received a degree either from the U.S. or their home country who wish to take additional courses to improve their skills.

Each quarter, ISP organizes an orientation program for all new international students that covers a wide range of topics including placement tests, health issues, personal safety, banking and transportation. ISP also conducts numerous workshops and events throughout the academic year on a broad range of topics based on student needs and interests. Furthermore, the office organizes a selection of social, cultural and recreational programs and activities to help familiarize international students with life in the Bay Area and the United States.
