J-1 Scholar Orientation

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 immigration document information to opportunities and resources for you and your families. Family members are also welcome to attend.
