International Student and Scholar Services


J-1 Students

The J Exchange Visitor category was developed to implement the Mutual Educational and Cultural Exchange Act (Fulbright-Hayes Act) of 1961, which was intended to increase understanding, strengthen ties, promote cooperation and help with the development of friendly and peaceful relations between the United States and other countries.

At St. Cloud State University, the act brings students and scholars to campus through a variety of programs.

Our programs

  • Exchange students

    International exchange students can find information on our services, immigration rules and regulations, links to the international community at the university and resources that are helpful to international students.
  • Sponsored students

    The United States government sponsors students through Fulbright, AMIDEast, IREX Pakistan, Egypt and the World Learning UGRAD agencies.
