SACM Sponsored Students

We are happy to have the opportunity to work with students who are sponsored by the Saudi Arabian Cultural Mission. If you are a SACM sponsored student please review the below information:

Enrollment Verification Letter (EVL)

SACM requires that students submit an EVL each semester in order to issue a Financial Guarantee (FG).
It is the responsibility of the student to request an EVL each semester.

  •  WHEN should I request my Enrollment Verification Letter (EVL)?
    As soon as you are registered full-time for the following semester you should request your EVL. 
    Full time = 12 units for undergraduate students/ 9 units for graduate.

Your EVL will be sent to your Cougar email as soon as it is ready.
*Please allow 2-3 business days to receive it.

 Online & Hybrid Course Policy:

 The Saudi Arabian Cultural Mission (SACM) has informed California State University, San Marcos that they will not pay for any entirely Internet - online- based or hybrid courses (typically indicated in the class schedule) which they have not first approved. For that reason, all SACM students must obtain approval through the process described below:

SACM may only approve an online/hybrid course if...
  • the course is required and only offered online/hybrid.
  • waiting until a later semester to take an on-campus section of the course would delay your graduation.
REQUEST ONLINE/HYBRID COURSE APPROVAL LETTER

If you meet one of the reasons listed above, please complete this Online/Hybrid Course Approval Form to receive a letter that you will send to SACM for their approval by the respective deadline.

*Please allow 2-3 business days to receive it.

If your request is approved, SACM will issue a separate financial guarantee for the online/hybrid course(s). Please submit the online course financial guarantee to the Office of Global Education before the start date  of the online course.
