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 & Programs (ISSP) administers the J-1 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 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 ISSP.
