Course Description

This course is intended for staff who work in academic departments or research units that hire international faculty and researchers. Participants will learn about U.S. immigration regulations and campus policy that govern hiring non-U.S. citizens using the J-1 visa, and how they can work with the staff at Services for International Students and Scholars (SISS) to facilitate the international hire. Topics covered include determining the right visa and extending a person's J-1 status, and how to help international faculty/researchers in this complex process. By the end of the course, participants will:

  • Know when a J-1 visa sponsorship is appropriate for nonimmigrant employees, and the general requirement of the J-1 visa
  • Understand the process necessary to work with SISS to apply for an initial J-1 visa
  • Understand the process necessary to work with SISS to apply for an extension of the J-1 stats
