In order to lawfully enter the U.S. to study full-time at Georgia State, you need to obtain a DS-2019 from Georgia State and then apply for a J-1 visa. Students already within the United States are eligible to transfer their immigration records to Georgia State through SEVIS. The International Student and Scholar Services office may also support students wishing to change status to F-1.
ISSS is committed to maintaining support and services to you during this time and will continue to operate under normal operating procedures for the remainder of the semester, just from a remote and online platform. This means you can call us directly or email us to request information and/or telephone/web appointments for advisement during our regular advisement hours.
