Exchange Visitors

The J-1 Exchange Visitor Program at NC State University is a federally administered program managed by the Department of State, which implements the Mutual Educational and Cultural Exchange Act of 1961. This Act promotes mutual understanding between the peoples of the United States and other countries by means of educational and cultural exchange. The program provides eligible foreign nationals with the opportunity to participate in exchange programs in the U.S. and then return home to share their experiences.

There are 3 categories of J-1 Exchange Visitors at NC State University: (1) Visiting Research Scholars or Professors, (2) Short Term Visiting Scholars, and (3) Visiting Student Interns. Please refer to the Exchange Visitors Presentation below for more information.

Hiring an exchange visitor is a very lengthy process as almost all exchange visitors require visa support. Please allow up to 3 months to hire an exchange visitor.
