Welcome to Boise State University! We are glad you have selected Boise State for your student exchange experience. This page is for international exchange students on J1 exchange visitor visas who are not seeking a degree from Boise State.
J-1 Visa & Arrival Information
You will need a form called a DS-2019 to apply for your J-1 visa stamp in your passport. The DS-2019 will be issued by the International Admissions Office as part of your student admission process to Boise State University.
The easiest place to apply for your visa is at the U.S. embassy or consulate in your home country, or the country in which you are living. We recommend that you apply for your visa as early as you can. You can enter the U.S. 30 days before the start date on your DS-2019.
