The office of International Student Programs (ISP) is the primary office on campus that serves the needs of De Anza's international student population. Prospective and degree-seeking international students are encouraged to contact this office and visit our campus.
ISP has a professional, multilingual staff who are well informed about educational development, personal and financial planning, cross-cultural issues, immigration rules and regulations, and community programs and resources.
The International Student Counselors assist students in designing their educational plans and prepare students for their transfer to a four-year university to continue their undergraduate education. ISP also serves many international students who have already received a bachelor's degree either from the U.S. or their home country who wish to take additional courses to improve their skills before applying to a graduate program.
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 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.
Dr. Martha J. Kanter who served as Chancellor of the Foothill-De Anza Community College District and former De Anza College President was officially appointed and sworn as Under Secretary of Education in Washington D.C. by the U.S. President Barack Obama.
