Success at GA Tech is more than getting straight As. In order to succeed while studying in the U.S, J-1 students need to comply with numerous immigration regulations. Violation of these regulations could greatly impact a student’s ability to succeed academically. All J-1 students are required to attend one of these sessions. Students in attendance will learn about enrollment requirements, travel issues, working in the U.S. and other relevant J-1 topics. For attendance purposes, students will be asked to present their GT identification card (Buzzcard) at the session.
