J-1 Exchange Visitor Program

UNT has been designated by the U.S. Department of State to operate a J-1 Exchange Visitor Program. The Exchange Visitor (EV) Program allows international faculty, post-doctoral researchers, scientists, and other professionals to spend time at UNT participating in activities including research, lecturing, observing, consulting, and teaching. Exchange visitors can be invited for a period of 1 day to 6 months for Short-Term Exchange Visitors and 3 weeks to 5 years for Research Exchange Visitors. Please note that J-1 visas are not an appropriate fit for permanent or tenure-track positions.

Requesting a J-1 Exchange Visitor

Please review the Guidebook and submit the DS-2019 request and upload required documentation through iNorthTX. If this is the first time you will be submitting an electronic request, you will need to request access, also located within the iNorthTX link.
