UCLA Dashew Center for International Students & Scholars

Exchange Visitors are required to report all locations (on or off campus) where program activity is taking place even if payment is not involved. Examples of activities include:

  • Field Work
  • Visiting research institutions
  • Visiting organizations
  • Conferences
  • Workshops
  • Meetings
  • Working at another UCLA department

The activity taking place at these locations must be directly related to the objectives of your program, be incidental to your primary program activities, not delay the completion date of your program, and must be approved by your UCLA faculty supervisor (PI).

For the Dashew Center to authorize the activity, you will need to fill out and submit the following form:

J-1 Site of Activity Request Form

The form will ask you to upload a letter from your UCLA Faculty Supervisor (on UCLA Letterhead). The letter should explain how the activity would enhance your program and verify that it will not interfere with your primary program objectives.
