Information for International Students
Since its founding, Pepperdine University has welcomed students from the international community. More than 400 international students from 70 countries are enrolled at the University.
International students are required to submit the International Student Data Form in addition to the required documents for all applicants for admission. The Office of International Student Services Office (OISS) provides the Form I-20, Certificate of Eligibility for Nonimmigrant (F-1) Student Status, the document that is needed for nonimmigrant international students to apply for the student visa. If the international student holds a different nonimmigrant visa status, has a pending permanent resident status application, or is otherwise not in need of the student visa or student-visa status, only the first page of the form may be completed.
The OISS also advises and assists international students regarding admission, campus orientation, academic advisement, immigration and other legal issues, and other matters pertaining to their nonimmigrant status in the United States. The OISS is centrally located on the Malibu campus. For more information on international student services, visit the OISS Web Site or call (310) 506-4246.
