Newly Admitted J-1 Students

Your Stay At UCLA - Maintaining J-1 Status

Once you have completed your mandatory check-in and visa workshop requirements at UCLA, it is your responsibility to review and understand DCISS guidelines for maintaining J-1 status to ensure compliance with U.S. Department of State J-1 regulations during your academic program.

Failure to comply with J-1 regulations may result in the termination of your J-1 status and loss of future eligibility to enter the U.S.
