Visiting Scholars

J-1 Exchange Visitors Program

International visitors to Utah State University who will be engaged in consultation, observation, research, training or demonstration of special skills should participate in the US Department of State Exchange Visitor Program and be present on a J-1 visa. We are the primary administrative unit on campus providing services to participants of the J-1 Exchange Visitors Program. Our office provides immigration advising and orientation to individuals in J-1 status, as well as programs and activities for these scholars and their dependents. Our office can provide additional services through our fee per service model.
