J-1 Research Scholar/Professor

J-1 Research Scholar/Professor

The Office of International Students and Scholars (OISS) is responsible for the issuance of DS-2019s on behalf of Teachers College.


A Form DS-2019 is necessary to apply for a J-1 exchange visitor visa and to enter the U.S. as a J-1 Research Scholar or Professor in order to conduct research, observe, or consult in connection with a research project at Teachers College.  

Visiting Scholars who have been invited to Teachers College and are in need of J-1 visa sponsorship should work with their academic host department to initiate the process of applying for their J-1 DS-2019.
