Jakarta International College

Dear JIC family,


We have great news for all of you who are planning to study in the USA and looking for a California university. JIC has now become the official partner of California State University, Long Beach.

For those of you still unfamiliar with CSU-LB, here are some plus points of CSU-LB as your university of choice:

  1. Located in Long Beach, California
    CSU-LB is located in Long Beach, California. It is California's seventh most populous city and is only half an hour away from LA. The city offers beautiful beaches and marinas along with a busy dining and shopping scene that you can enjoy. Also, if you are the type of person who prefers warm weather, Long Beach is probably one of the best places for you to live in.

  2. Various attractions around the area
    Heads up to all of you who love Disney and Harry Potter, CSU-LB is only a 30-40 minutes drive from Disney Land and Universal Studios Hollywood. So you can imagine how much fun you can have while studying there.
    And that’s not all; Long Beach also offers a lot of attractions for you to enjoy, such as the aquarium of the Pacific, Naple Canals, the Queen Mary, and many more.

  3. Affordable tuition
    CSULB has consistently been one of the most affordable universities in California. The tuition for international students is set at around $17,000 per year, a much cheaper tuition compared to many other universities in California. Not to mention, CSULB is located in a big city, making the tuition fee even more worth it.

  4. Ranking
    CSULB is ranked #133 nationally and #64 among public universities, making it one of the higher-ranking California State University

  5. 2+2 program
    Another great thing about CSULB is that you can transfer there by taking JIC’s 2+2 program. Through our 2+2 program, you can study in Jakarta for 2 years and at CSULB for only 2 years. This option allows you to save money and stay with your parents longer before finally transferring with the friends you made at JIC.


Those are some of the benefits you will get by going to CSULB. We believe that the beauty and fun living of Long Beach will make your college life even more colorful and memorable.

Thank you, and see you at JIC
