Request to Host an International Exchange Visitor

If you are considering bringing a J-1 visiting scholar to campus, please follow the steps below (note the timeframe for completing each task):

  1. Identify visitor. This might be an international intern, scholar, or researcher.
  2. Coordinate with the sponsoring academic unit in which the scholar will be working. It is very important to ensure that the CGE is part of all communications both with the sponsoring academic unit and the visiting scholar.
  3. If this will be your first time hosting an international exchange visitor, it is recommended that you schedule an initial meeting with the director of the Center for Global Engagement (CGE). You should schedule this meeting at least six months before proposed scholar arrival.
  4. Submit a Department Request for International Intern (PDF) or International Scholar (PDF) to the CGE.
  5. Complete an English Proficiency Interview Assessment (PDF) with the exchange visitor.
  1. Send the DS-2019 Request Form (PDF) and the Financial Affidavit (PDF) to the exchange visitor you will be hosting. The exchange visitor should complete these forms and return, with supporting documentation.
  2. Submit the completed DS-2019 Request Form (PDF), English Proficiency Interview Assessment, and Financial Affidavit (PDF), with all supporting documentation, to the CGE. Requests for a DS-2019 must occur no later than four months before the proposed scholar arrival.
  3. Requests for international interns require additional documentation. Please submit the following documents to the CGE if you are requesting an international intern:
