Transferring to Dartmouth College
J-1 Exchange Visitors who are currently at another U.S. institution may transfer their J-1 sponsorship to Dartmouth. When the host department or school has issued the appointment letter for a program of research or teaching, the department will initiate the J-1 sponsorship request process in iDartmouth.
The Exchange Visitor will receive a message to complete the forms for the J-1 sponsorship request, including the J-1 transfer form. The form asks the Exchange Visitor to provide the contact information for the individual at the current J program-sponsoring institution so that individual can approve the transfer request, including the requested transfer release date.
Transfer-in J-1 Exchange Visitors will not be issued a new Form DS-2019 from Dartmouth until all required forms are completed and requested documents are provided, and the SEVIS transfer release date is reached.
In order to transfer your J-1 record to Dartmouth College, you must have time remaining within your J-1 category and you must be transferring to study or conduct research in the same field in which your original DS-2019 form was issued.
