English Proficiency Requirement for J-1 Visitors
As of January 5, 2015, U.S. regulations require all new faculty, researchers, postdoctoral scholars (and some students) in J-1 immigration status to demonstrate proficiency in English before UNL can issue Form DS-2019.
To meet this requirement, the hosting department must provide a TOEFL/IELTS test score or record a personal interview using the English Proficiency Form. ISSO needs to receive the English Proficiency Form and a digital recording of the interview (or TOEFL/IELTS score) before the DS-2019 can be issued.
