California State University Channel Islands’ Semester at CI program allows international students to enroll in regular university credit classes on a “space-available” basis, subject to the approval of the instructor and the Academic Affairs department. Check the CSU Channel Islands Schedule of Classes for class meeting times and locations. The application and registration process is easy. Admission to the University is not required. Eligible international students will be issued an I-20 immigration form which allows students to apply for an F1 student visa.
