Current J-1 Scholars

As a J-1 Scholar, your main point of contact and support is your academic department.

However, International Services is also here to help you in any way we can. Click on a sub-topic under “Current J-1 Scholars” on the left for more information about a specific issue.

Download the J-1 Scholar Handbook (updated October 2017) for helpful information about your J-1 status and life at GSU and in Atlanta.

Please refer to our website and the handbook for answers to most common questions.

If you require additional assistance, please contact the J-1 Scholar Advisor in ISSS, Tim Edenfield.
