SRJC is regionally accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC). More information is available on the District's Accreditation webpage. As part of the accreditation process, ISP has developed a mission statement and several Service Area Learning Outcomes (SALO): 

ISP Mission

The International Student Program (ISP) serves to further diversify SRJC through the continued growth and support of our international student population. ISP fulfills this mission by providing admissions, orientation, and advising to nonimmigrant students from around the world, who bring new perspectives to the SRJC classroom and a cultural richness to the local community.


ISP is housed under Admissions and Records which operates under the Student Services division. Students in the International Student Program will:

  1. Demonstrate an understanding of student obligations, college resources, and other matters related to their academic success by attending the new student orientation.
  2. Enhance their experiences at SRJC by participating in the International Club and/or other student activities.
  3. Demonstrate an understanding of the requirements for maintaining legal status and will communicate regularly with the International Student Advisor(s).
