Columbia University charges a $500 administrative fee to those requesting J-1 visa sponsorship in order to :
- further personal, independent research and scholarship, or
- satisfy a practicum/internship required for a degree at their home institution for those who have not yet been awarded a diploma equivalent to the US Bachelor’s degree.
This fee is separate from any U.S. government SEVIS/visa application fee.
