Scholars arriving on a Clark University-sponsored J-1 visa are required to pay a SEVIS fee to the U.S. Government. This non-refundable fee is different from the visa application fee. You are able to pay the SEVIS fee after you receive your DS-2019. Payment instructions will be sent to you along with your documents. You may also refer to the government website for additional instructions and information.
Pay the required SEVIS fee and be sure to print the receipt needed when you apply for your visa.
