J-1 Information and Forms
Nearly all request forms are now accessed via ISSAlink
J-1 students with DS-2019 forms issued by other agencies or organizations (other than the University of Notre Dame) must address all employment and immigration questions and requests with their sponsoring agencies/organizations directly.
For more than 50 years, International Student and Scholar Affairs (ISSA) at the University of Notre Dame has paired international students with members of the local community, allowing participants to learn more about different cultures, traditions, and languages.
For the average incoming freshman, leaving friends and family to go to college for the first time is often an overwhelming experience. But for international students, these nerves and uncertainties are amplified, as they must travel longer distances and face an entirely new culture and language.
That’s where the Notre Dame International Ambassadors step in.
