Special Instructions for International Students

Once an international student has been admitted to California Christian College, he or she needs to obtain an F-1 student visa to enter the United States.  California Christian College is not an agent that issues Visas, but the school will issue an I-20 to the student once the student is admitted and has made a deposit on his or her account of no less than the estimated total tuition and fees for the first year.  CCC verifies student enrollment with duly authorized officials of the Federal, State, and Local governments of the United States of America. Once California Christian College issues the student an I-20, CCC is not responsible for that student financially, legally, or otherwise. All applications made toward a student’s Visa/Immigrant status are the student’s personal responsibility.
