The Center for International Students and Programs (CISP) oversees the Student and Visitor Exchange Program (SVEP) which authorizes RCCD to host foreign national students in compliance with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). Riverside City, Moreno Valley and Norco colleges host nearly 200 international students each semester from over 30 countries.

Riverside California offers international students the opportunity for a quality American college experience in a state known throughout the world for its superior education system. As an integral part of the California higher education system, RCCD offers associate degrees for transfer and students may also take advantage of the Transfer Admission Guarantee (TAG) program at several UCs.
