J-1 Student

W&M values the exchange of ideas, people, research, and culture as central to its mission of furthering human knowledge and understanding.

Aligned with this mission, the Office of International Students, Scholars, and Programs administers the J1 Exchange Visitor Program at W&M. Through the W&M Exchange Visitor Program, we bring students and scholars from around the world to advance the internationalization of learning, teaching, research and community engagement at William & Mary and to promote mutual understanding among people of diverse backgrounds.

William & Mary hosts over 50 students under our J1 Exchange Visitor Program each year. There are very specific regulations that must be followed for students on J-1 visas. The pages linked below have detailed information about these regulations. If you have questions, please make an appointment with an international advisor at the Reves Center.
