J-1 Students and Interns

As stated by the U.S. Department of State: “The Exchange Visitor Program promotes mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries by educational and cultural exchanges”.

Stockton University is a public university certified by the U.S. Department of State to sponsor exchange students, and facilitate their entry into the U.S. under the J-1 visa requirements, enabling them to complete their program requirements successfully and ensure their return to their home country to “utilize the experience and skills they have acquired while in the U.S.”


Exchange students and interns interested in pursuing undergraduate degrees courses or an internship at Stockton University must be nominated by their home institution and accepted into Stockton University before they can be considered for a J-1 visa.  To expedite the process, you may begin the Stockton application found at this Exchange Partnership page while waiting for your home university nomination.
