International Student Exchange

Given the current situation with COVID-19, Jeffco Public Schools has made the difficult decision to not accept any further J-1 and F-1 applications for the 2020-2021 school year, which includes second semester requests. Please refer back to this page for any updates.

Each year, high school student from countries around the globe come for a semester or a full year of study in Jeffco Public Schools. Jeffco accepts students with either J-1 or F-1 Visas. Students who wish to study in Jeffco on a J-1 visa must come through an Approved Exchange Agency. Students who wish to study in Jeffco on an F-1 visa should contact the International Student Exchange Coordinator, Julie Doyle, for further information and the F-1 application package.

Important Information for Agencies

In order to place students in Jeffco, all agencies must apply annually, and be accepted for inclusion on the district's list of approved agencies for the following academic school year.  

The agencies currently listed are approved for the 2020-21 school year.  If your agency is not on our approved list and would like to apply for the 2021-22 school year, the next deadline to apply will be December 7, 2020.  Agencies will need to complete either the new or renewal application and at least one agency representative affirmation agreement at the time of application.

Agencies and host parents should not contact any school until the Director of International Student Exchanges has signed and returned a Permission to Enroll form to the agency. Violation of this policy can result in suspension from Jeffco's Approved Agency List.

Below are the documents required for J-1 Student Exchanges.  For F-1 Applications, please contact Julie Doyle, International Student Exchange Coordinator.
