The Office of International Student and Scholar Services (ISSS) serves as a program sponsor for the J-1 Exchange Visitor Program on behalf of Florida Atlantic University (FAU). ISSS advises FAU departments on appropriate visa classifications for prospective international visiting scholars in the categories of professor, research scholar, short-term scholar, specialist, or international student intern.

Departments who are interested in sponsoring international visiting scholars must complete the Scholar Request Form (Part I and Part II) in order to obtain the DS-2019 Certificate of Eligibility for a J-1 exchange visitor visa.
