Dedicated support for all international students.

The Office of International Students and Scholars is dedicated to providing social support and immigration advisement for the well being of international students who attend Cal Lutheran.

We offer immigration advisement, workshops, and social activities for international students. We also serve as an educational resource for students, faculty and staff. Programs and activities sponsored by the Office encourage international and American students to interact in order to provide an enriched campus community for all.

Travel Advisory 

Given the recent Executive Orders regarding a ban on entry into the United States, it is highly recommended that international students and foreign nationals who were born in or are citizens of the list of countries on the banned list not travel outside the U.S. at this time.  Even if your country is not currently listed among the banned countries, you might consider whether this might change while you are away.  This includes travel to Mexico and Canada and U.S. Territories.

Please make us aware if you have any issues or concerns or if you have family or friends affected by these new bans.
