Employment Regulations

J-1 scholars may not conduct research or teach outside of UHV unless specifically authorized in advance by the International Programs Office (IPO) to give a lecture or consult at another institution.

The approved activity must be short term and must be consistent with your J-1 program objective. The activity cannot delay completion of your J-1 program at UHV. IPO will need to update your site of activity in SEVIS before you participate in the activity, and the site where you are doing the activity will require documentation from IPO.

If you are invited to speak or consult at another institution, you should contact your scholar advisor in IPO before you agree to undertake this activity.
