Student Resources

Getting ready to come to America to study at the ALCI is exciting, but there's also a lot that you'll need to prepare for before you come to CSU San Marcos.

In this section, you'll find information that covers some of these steps. You should bookmark this page, as it will be a handy reference both before and during your stay in California.

The ALCI welcomes students from all over the world, every semester.  Many students will spend weeks or months adjusting to American culture.  If you have questions about your time in the United States you can always ask another student or contact the office for assistance.  There are many people willing to help!  We are sure that you will find CSU San Marcos a welcoming place.

The infomation in this section will help you before arrival as well as when you are already here studying. Make sure to reference this section often for more information.
