Submit J1 scholar requests to the International Center by Wed. Dec 17th

The U.S. Department of State has enacted new federal regulations regarding the J1 program and we have been given a very short timeframe to update our processes and procedures. The new regulations go into effect on Monday, January 5th, 2015. Due to this, please submit any J1 scholar requests to the IC by Wed. Dec 17th to allow time for processing before the new regulations go into effect. Any requests received after this date will be subject to the new regulations. We will be releasing information regarding the new process before the end of the year. Information sessions will be held in January to review the new regulations and procedures.

New regulations include:
- Documented proof of English Language proficiency
- Increased health insurance coverage

Thank you for your cooperation as we work together to continue to bring outstanding scholars to the IIT community.

Completed request forms and supporting documents should be directed to:
