Our Mission

The International Programs Office is dedicated to providing the highest quality of social support and immigration advisement for the well being of international students who attend California Lutheran University. The office also serves as an educational resource for students, faculty and staff.

Specifically, the Office offers immigration advisement, workshops and social activities for international students. Programs and activities sponsored by the office encourage international and American students to interact in order to provide an enriched campus community for all.

New I-94 Procedures at the border!  Immigration will no longer issue you a white I-94 card upon entry to the U.S.  Instead, you will receive a stamp in your passport and you are required to print out the I-94 from the immigration website. 


Please bring your passport and a copy of your new I-94 into the International Student Services Office. We need a copy of the stamp in your passport and the I-94 for your file. As always, keep a copy for your own records!

New International Wire Process with peerTransfer

California Lutheran University has partnered with peerTransfer to streamline the tuition payment process for our international students.  With peerTransfer, you are offered excellent foreign exchange rates, allowing you to pay in your home currency (in most cases) and save a significant amount of money, as compared to traditional banks.  You will also be notified via email when your payment is received by California Lutheran University.
