J-1 Scholars and Faculty
Your J-1 Responsible Officer For advice, questions and information, consult your J-1 Responsible Officer.
If your J-1 sponsor is the University of Maryland, then consult with one of our Faculty and Scholar Advisors, Connie Jesse Lira or Briana Anderson. You may also consult by phone at 301-314-7740.
If your J-1 sponsor is an agency, and if you are uncertain how to reach your J-1 Responsible Officer, staff in International Student & Scholar Services at the University of Maryland can help you contact the agency, but they have no authority over your J-1 visa status.
