Getting the Baylor DS-2019
Exchange Students will come to Baylor on the J-1 Visa using the DS-2019 form. After students have successfully completed the nomination and online applications (goBaylor) steps, students will receive an email with instructions for requesting the DS-2019 from the Center for Global Engagement.
The International Student and Scholar Services staff assists students with their DS-2019 as well other questions related to government regulations and documents. Exchange Students must login to the Global Bears system using their Bear ID and Password to begin their DS-2019 Request. Students will be required to upload documents online such as their passport and any financial information. Questions related to this process should be directed to Grace Semple-Paul, Assistant Director for ISSS. She will be the primary contact for the DS-2019 and any questions related to getting the J-1 visa.
