Regulatory Changes for J-Exchange Visitors

In October, the United States Department of State published a substantial change to J-regulations with the intention of better protecting program participants.  A summary of the changes that directly affect J-1 and J-2 holders and their hosts can be found here.

Tax Information

The ISSO will work with UCSF's Tax/Payroll Specialist and the California State Tax Franchise Board to offer federal and state tax workshops, which will be held in late March 2015. We will notify international students and scholars of these workshops, as well as share information about Glacier's Tax Prep Software in late February by email. Please note that ISSO Adviser's are legally unable to provide tax advice. For tax resources, please see https://isso.ucsf.edu/taxes
