WSJ1B - J-1 Advising for Beginners

Tuesday, October 18
8:00 AM - 5:00 PM
Room: Vanderbilt

This workshop is designed for beginners with less than 18 months experience in the field. Through various activities, participants will learn about the parties involved in exchange visitor programs, making decisions about J-1 issues, use of SEVIS, J-1 categories, regulations governing program sponsors, pre-arrival processes, health insurance, orientation for exchange visitors, the two-year home residence requirement, bar to participation as a J-1 research scholar or professor, and ongoing processes for exchange visitors. This workshop does not cover requirements specific to trainee, high school, or graduate medical education categories, nor does it cover the procedures to obtain an exchange visitor program designation. SEVIS is discussed in relation to advising practices and procedures.

Audience: International student advisers working with an existing J-1 program. Visit the NAFSA site for a full workshop description:
