Welcome to the Missouri State University Exchange Visitor Program.

The purpose of the J-1 Exchange Visitor Program, administered by the U.S. Department of State, is to promote mutual understanding between the people of the United States and other countries by means of educational and cultural exchange.

As a designated sponsor of the program, Missouri State University welcomes exchange visitors in the following categories: University Students (non-degree), Professors, Research Scholars, Short-Term Scholars, and Specialists. The multifaceted programs enable foreign nationals to come to the U.S. to teach, study, conduct research, demonstrate special skills, or receive on the job training for periods ranging from a few weeks to several years. Missouri State University can host exchange visitors that have established a relationship with an academic and/or administrative department.
