The majority of the students entering Clarkson University come on F student visas - however - there are a few that arrive under the J1 exchange visitor program as students. There are two distinct differences between the F1 & J1 student visa -

  • The J1 student visa allows for certain nondegree or nonenrolled educationa programs not easily availalbe to the F1 category
  • J1 students cannot be totally funded by personal or family funds.

Hopefully the infomraiton found here will alleviate any questions you have on the J1 student visa.
