J-1 exchange students visit the University of Idaho as full-time students for a period of usually one or two semesters pursuant to a formal reciprocal exchange agreement between the University of Idaho and their home institution or with an exchange organization of which the University of Idaho is a member (such as ISEP, the International Student Exchange Program). J-1 exchange students must engage in a full-time course of study
unless specifically granted permission to drop below full-time by the Office of International Student, Scholar and Faculty Services. Exchange students must also maintain adequate health insurance coverage
that meets the U.S. Dept. of State requirements.
Exchange students must demonstrate the availability of adequate funding to cover the cost of living in Moscow, Idaho.
This information is not intended for students from universities with which the University of Idaho does not have an exchange agreement or students who wish to complete a degree at the University of Idaho. Those students should go to the Apply
section of the University of Idaho Web site, which provides information to international students who wish to pursue a degree at the University of Idaho.
