J-1 Exchange Visitor Program
PLEASE NOTE: Due to the COVID-19 crisis, UNT is not accepting applications for new J-1 exchange visitors in the professor/researcher categories until after August 1, 2020 or until UNT has reached Phase 3 of the UNT Research Reopen Plan. You can read more about the UNT Research Reopen Plan here.
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.
