What should I do if I'm finishing my J-1 program earlier than my DS-2019 ends?

If you are ending your participation more than 15 days before the end date of your current DS-2019, you are required to report leaving the U.S. to the International Center by submitting our J-1 Scholar Notice of Early Departure. You may schedule an appointment to meet with an International Scholar Advisor if you have questions about your current or future immigration status but it is not required. Submitting the J-1 Scholar Notice of Early Departure will also terminate your insurance if you are currently enrolled in UM's International Health Insurance plan.
