International Students

Palo Alto University prides itself on providing a welcome environment to students from all over the world. International students will feel welcome in the diverse San Francisco Bay Area culture. Located 35 miles south of San Francisco, Palo Alto University is situated at the apex of Silicon Valley and minutes away from Stanford University and downtown Palo Alto. 

Please Note: International students who plan to be in their home country while being enrolled in an online PAU Master's program are eligible to apply. International students currently living in the U.S. in F-1 status and those interested in becoming F-1 international students for studying in the U.S. are not currently able to apply to PAU Master's Programs.  PAU has a pending application on file with U.S. immigration/DHS, that if/when it is approved, will allow F-1s to apply.  Please contact your PAU admissions staff for updates on this issue. 

Most but not all non-immigrant visa categories allow full time study in academic programs. If you are uncertain about the regulations of your immigration status, please contact the Student Services Associate Director.  F-1 international student applicants applying to doctoral and undergraduate programs, please review 'Admission Requirements for F-1 students'.

The office of student services can provides assistance in the areas of housing, living in the United Statesas well as F-1 immigration regulations and F-1 employment.
