What is an International Applicant?
International applicants include those who hold U.S. visas as students, exchange visitors, or those in other non-immigrant classifications. As part of the California State University (CSU) system, Cal Poly must assess the academic preparation of international students and we use separate requirements in the admission of international students.
We accept applications for international undergraduate students from October 1 - November 30. Deadlines for Graduate programs depend on the program. Learn more about our application process and how to submit your application materials.
