Skyline College Receives U.S. Department of State Approval for Passport Acceptance Facility

Passport Acceptance Facility photoStudents, faculty, staff and members of the community can now apply for a U.S. passport directly through the Global Learning Programs and Services (GLPS) Division in Building 2, Room 2-352.

Skyline College GLPS Division has been designated an official Passport Acceptance Facility by the U.S. Department of State. The hours of operation are 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. from Monday to Friday.

For the local San Bruno community, Skyline College Passport Acceptance Services, offered by the college is a high demand service as currently the only place for residents to apply for their passports is the U.S. Post Office in the City of San Bruno. As a Passport Acceptance Facility, we are authorized to receive completed applications for a U.S. Passport and submit the application along with all necessary documentation to the U.S. Department of State. The U.S. Department of State will then determine eligibility for a U.S. Passport and makes the final decision to issue a passport to an applicant.

As part of the Skyline College Passport Acceptance Services, we are happy to provide necessary forms required to apply for a U.S. passport, as well as other related forms and field any questions regarding the passport application process. We will also offer on-site passport photo services and two dedicated parking spots in Lot D of the Skyline College campus.

The Passport Acceptance Facility is a recipient of Skyline College’s President’s Innovation Fund for 2017-18 and housed in the Global Learning Programs and Services Division. For questions about this service, please contact Zaid Ghori, Director of Special International Programs, at (650) 738-4252 or email skylinepassportservices@smccd.edu.
