J-1 Scholar Orientation

Main content start

As a  J-1 Scholar, you are expected to attend an orientation session to learn more about your transition to Stanford and critical regulatory information pertaining to your J status and maintaining compliance.

We offer two orientations per month, one over zoom, and one in-person. Topics covered will range from travel-related concerns, off-site activities and tax obligations to opportunities and resources for you and your families. Family members are also welcome to attend. Please note that in September, we will offer an orientation every week.
