J-1 Reporting Requirements

The U.S. Department of State (DOS) and U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) require J-1 students to maintain their J-1 records through a number of reporting procedures throughout the course of their J-1 program. In most cases a J-1 visitor can meet these requirements by reporting any changes to the International Student Services Office (ISSO).
