J-1 Categories

The U.S. Department of State requires that J-1 Exchange Visitors coming to perform research or to teach at NC State University be assigned a category which reflects their academic activities on campus. When determining the category, OIS and the host academic department must consider the Exchange Visitor’s academic background, specific activity at NC State, immigration history, the possibility of repeat visits to the U.S., anticipated length of stay, and the possibility of extension to that length of stay. Below you will find an overview of the categories available at NC State University:
