Services for International Students and Scholars assists international students, faculty and researchers in gaining and maintaining an appropriate immigration status while at UC Davis. SISS provides orientation and other information and assistance as part of its mission to build a campus community that is fully inclusive of international students and scholars.

All new and transfer international students must attend a special orientation program held just before each quarter begins. The orientation helps new students with immigration regulations and finding campus services and community resources, and is a vital addition to campus and departmental orientation programs. Orientation for new J-1 international scholars is held every two weeks. Students and scholars should report to SISS as soon as possible after arriving in Davis.

Estimated Costs for 2016-2017

International students are responsible for all of their expenses while studying at UC Davis. The expenses include Nonresident Supplemental Tuition, Tuition, room and board and a modest amount for personal expenses. For the 2016-2017 calendar year, we estimate the cost will be $56,000 (9 months) for undergraduates, and $55,800 (12 months) for graduate students. Because the exact cost for tuition and fees is not determined until just before the beginning of the academic year, these are only preliminary figures. This minimum allowance may be increased without advance notice.
