Institutions nominate an exchange applicant to International Affairs via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. The International Affairs Office will review the exchange balance and determine if the student can submit an application. Please note that College of Business manages exchange partnerships and balances for many of the college’s own programs.
Once the nomination is approved, the exchange applicant can apply via International Admissions. Students can complete the non-degree seeking exchange applicant materials online at https://www.uccs.edu/admissions/international.

Required Health Insurance
All J-1 exchange students must abide by the Department of State requirements for health insurance. J-1 exchange visitors and accompanying J-2 dependents are required to maintain comprehensive medical insurance with evacuation and repatriation coverage that meets U.S. government minimum requirements beginning on the start date of the J-1 program continuing to the end of the J-1 program. There cannot be any breaks or lapses in insurance coverage even if one travels outside the U.S for an extended period of time during the J program. Please refer to the minimum benefit levels indicated in the regulation (22 CFR 62.14) and on the Department of State’s J Exchange Visitor Program website.
