Welcome Prospective Students

The Sonoma State University International Admissions Office welcomes you to our web site for prospective students. We currently host students from countries throughout the world and want you to know that our office is committed to serving the special needs of international applicants. We welcome the global perspective of our international students and look forward to working with you in the application process.

Sonoma State University is a medium-size (about 8500 students) university campus nestled in the rolling hills of Northern California. Our location, in the wine country 43 miles north of San Francisco, provides a wonderful combination of country surroundings and safety with access to nearby big city activities.

What sets Sonoma State apart from other schools is our friendly campus community where you will find academic excellence, innovative approaches to learning and close working relationships between faculty and students. With 45 undergraduate and 14 graduate majors, Sonoma State will prepare you for a rewarding "professional life" in fields such as business, psychology, education and the health professions.

Our international evaluator assists prospective students with the application process, application status, evaluation of academic records and initial immigration issues. We invite you to explore our web site and contact us if you have any questions.
