J-1 Students

J-1 status is used by many different visitors to the U.S. At U of I J-1 status is most often used by visiting and exchange students and by international scholars. J-1 status is a non-immigrant classification, which means that you must demonstrate to the U.S. government that you do not intend to reside in the U.S. on a permanent basis. You must also demonstrate sufficient proficiency in the English language. Form DS-2019 provides evidence of eligibility for J-1 status.

Applications to change to J-1 status may be filed by individuals who are residing in the U.S. in a qualifying non-immigrant status. All other students must apply for a visa stamp abroad.

If you would like to change to J-1 status in the U.S., contact International Student, Scholar and Faculty Services to discuss the options at least six months before the planned start date of your program.
