Students also should be excused for participation in official University-sponsored activities, such as music performances, athletic competition, or debate. Students chosen for such events including intercollegiate athletics, band, choir, and academically related programs shall be listed on a “Program Verification” form. Program Directors shall provide each student with a copy of this form. It is the student’s responsibility to present a copy of this form to the faculty member(s) responsible for the class from which the student will be absent. This verification is to be provided prior to the class period whenever possible and no later than the first class following the event. A copy of the form listing students selected to represent the University and signed by the Program Director shall be filed with the Office of Student Rights and Responsibilities (FC 155). If further verification is needed, contact the Office of Student Rights and Responsibilities (FC 142; 407-823-6960) or, for athletic events only, Academic Services for Student-Athletes, Wayne Densch Sports Center, 103A; 407-823-5896.
I am currently an Au Pair with a J1 visa. I have been in the states almost 5 months and after 2 swaps in families, I am still having the same issue. The host families abuse and over work us and the agency don’t take any action. I am wondering, if I return home to Australia ( ending my J1 visa ) can I go home and apply for a B2 visitor visa with intent to study? Is there time frame I need to wait out before applying? Is there a chance I will be knocked back? I don’t have the 2yr residency on my visa so I know that works in my favour. I really want to finish exploring this country and look into study. Any help would be appreciated!!!
