DS-2019 Form for J-1 Exchange Visitor and Dependents

Cal Poly Pomona has an Exchange Visitor Program authorized by the Department of State to issue DS-2019 forms for student admission or scholar invitation to Cal Poly Pomona. An DS-2019 form is generally used to obtain a J-1 visa from a U.S. Consulate or Embassy and to enter the U.S. It is also issued for the purpose of extension; transfer from one Exchange Visitor Program to another to complete the original program objective and for dependents to obtain J-2 visas.

The exchange visitor is given the pink copy of the DS-2019 for documentation of their status. This copy is signed on the back by the Program Sponsor for travel and to re-enter to the U.S.
