Step 3: After You Have Been Admitted to OSU

Immigration Information

Form DS-2019: After your admission to OSU the Office of International Student Advising and Services (ISAS) will issue a form DS-2019 that is required for the application for your J-1 visa. After your DS-2019 is created, ISAS will contact you with mailing instructions for your DS-2019 and Letter of Admission. 

Visa: Visit the Visa and Immigration Information web-page to learn about how to apply for J-1 visa.

Maintaining J-1 Visa Status: The Department of State (DOS) has regulations regarding how to maintain J-1 visa status. As long as you continually meet these obligations, you will be considered “in status” or “maintaining your visa status.” International Student Advisors in the office of International Student Advising and Services (ISAS) are available to assist you; however, it is your responsibility to know and follow the regulations and maintain your immigration status. Visit the Visa and Immigration Information web-page to learn about how to maintain your status.
