New Students: Pre-Arrival Guide

Last updated on May 16, 2023

Welcome to California College of the Arts!

The Office of International Student Affairs and Programs (ISAP) are so excited for you to join us and experience the unique culture of CCA as well as the greater Bay Area. We are here to help you adjust to being somewhere new and to provide you with the resources that are available to you as a CCA student.

The guide below provides a starting point to help prepare you for a smooth transition to the United States. You will find information about entering the U.S., orientation, tips from fellow international students, and much more.
