Applications and Study Options
Initial or Change of Status I-20 Application
If you are not currently studying at a college or university, applying from a school outside the U.S. or changing your status to F-1.
Transfer I-20 Application
If you want to keep your I-20 at another school and only want to take one or two classes at Citrus College, or you have an F-2 visa and want to study part-time.
If you have completed your OPT (Optional Practical Training), after completing a Program of Study with Citrus College, and wish to complete a new Program of Study before either returning home or continuing onto the Bachelor Degree level or beyond, choose this application. If you are completing OPT at another school, and wish to transfer to Citrus College afterwards, choose the "Transfer International (F-1 Visa) Application" listed above instead.
The College/Academic Program Option is available to students who meet the program English proficiency (Minimum TOEFL 450/45, IELTS 5.0, two years of high school in the US, official US college transcripts with a passed Academic English course, FLS Level 14 [Formerly 7b], ELS Level 109, IKEN Grade 2, Kaplan Higher Intermediate Level, Pearson 39, ITEP 3.5 or Cambridge FCE). Proof of English proficiency is NOT required for Intensive English Option (ESL) applicants. The ISC also has agreements with local language schools for transfer students who have passed their language programs.
In the College/Academic Program, you can choose from close to 19 transfer degrees with guaranteed admissions to the California State University System, 32 other associate degrees, and 43 certificate programs. These university-level programs prepare you to complete your bachelor’s degree at four-year universities in California.
Along with university-level classes, students enrolled in the College/Academic Program can select from a variety of English-as-a-Second-Language (ESL) classes, allowing you to enhance your English skills in conversation, reading and writing while you earn college credit.
Intensive ESL Option
The Intensive ESL Option is designed for students who have either scored too low on an approved English proficiency test or who have not taken an English proficiency test. This option will help you learn English or improve your English skills in order to complete college work. The Intensive ESL Option is a one or two semester immersion program in English language and daily living skills that prepares you to take either the TOEFL or start the College Program Option at Citrus College. Students who successfully complete the Intensive ESL Program by passing Level Five (5) may enter the regular academic program without submitting another application.
Part-Time Enrollment for Current F-1 Students at Other Schools or F-2 Students
This option is for current students who want to keep their I-20 at their current schools, but need to take one or two classes at Citrus College concurrently, or they are on an F-2 Visa.
