J-1 Students

Purpose of the J-1 program

The purpose of the J-1 Exchange Visitor Program  is “to increase mutual understanding between the United States and the people of other countries by means of educational and cultural exchanges.”  The ISSO  strives to achieve this goal by providing exceptional service to UTD’s J-1 student population in the areas of advising, processing and cultural enrichment.

New J-1 Students

For new J-1 students, the Office of International Student Services (ISSO) will assist you in obtaining U.S. immigration documents, obtaining a U.S. visa and arriving in the U.S. as easily as possible.

UT Dallas and the ISSO look forward to meeting you and partnering with you in creating a rich and meaningful J-1 experience for you and other J-1 students. If you have ideas for improvements or events that would assist you in meeting the diplomatic goals of your J-1 immigration status let the ISSO know.
