Change in Medical Insurance Process
The Health Services Center is now responsible for verifying health insurance for international students. That means if you have a health insurance hold preventing your registration, you will need to go to the Health Services Center and show Gloria D’Ambria your proof that you purchased health insurance. Any questions about health insurance can be answered by Gloria as well. The Health Services Center is located in Building 1 on the first floor.

Fall back on Sunday! Time to change your clocks
It’s that time of year again: Daylight Saving Time ends. Be sure to set back (or “fall back”) your clocks one hour on Sunday. The official change happens at 2 a.m. (which will then become 1 a.m.) So the good news is you get to sleep an extra hour on Sunday. Read about healthy ways to fall back on Sunday.

Registration starts Tuesday, Nov. 5
International students with current education plans can start registering at 7 a.m. on Tuesday, November 5. Take advantage of priority registration to get the classes you need and the schedule you want! Don’t delay your registration. If you need help registering for classes, please come to our office or call us at 650-574-6525. You can find instructions on how to register for classes here.

Your Opinion Matters to Us
Please give us your opinion of the services you are receiving as an international student at CSM by completing the International Student Survey. You will be entered into a drawing to win an iPod Nano or CSM Bookstore gift cards if you complete the survey by November 30. Our success depends on how well we serve our international students. Your feedback helps us to deliver the best possible service – something we work to improve every day. We encourage you to give us your comments and suggestions. All survey responses are strictly confidential.

Write a review
The International Student Center is still accepting reviews to use on our blog. Reviews should be 25-50 words on any restaurant, store, concert, or other event that you liked. If we use your review on The Bulldog Barks blog you’ll be rewarded with a gift certificate.
