The Binational and International Programs Office, will assist 40 students in obtaining
a Global Entry Pass. SWC will pay the $122.25 application fee for a Global Entry Pass.
The goal is to help binational/fronterizo and F-1 border commuter students reduce
the time they spend crossing the border to attend classes at SWC. We are coordinating
with the California Border Patrol to help us inform students on the process to apply
for Global Entry.
Why Global Entry and not Sentry pass? The application for the Global Entry pass seems
to be faster.
Binational/Fronterizo Students (U.S Citizens/Permanent Residents living in Mexico)
and F-1 International Border Commuter Students.
