Welcome International Scholars, Employees, and Visitors

In order to become a J-1 Scholar or Intern at the University of Tennessee, a scholar must be hosted by a UT department. The host-department will be responsible for submitting a J-1 scholar request form and/or J-1 intern request form to CIE. After reviewing and approving the forms and required documents, CIE will issue a DS-2019 for the scholar to apply for a J-1 visa. Scholars will find more useful information using the links below or the menu on the left side of the page.
