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 Scholar 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 Scholars and 3 weeks to 5 years for Research Scholars/Professors. Please note that J-1 visas are not an appropriate fit for permanent or tenure-track positions.
