- Do I need a U.S. Student Visa?
All international exchange students are required to obtain a J-1 visa to attend The Ohio State University. This includes European students. A "Visa Waiver" is not permitted at Ohio State -- all students must have a J-1 visa. Information about U.S. consulate policies, procedures, and requirements can be obtained through the U.S. State Department. Applicants for student visas usually apply at the U.S. Embassy or Consulate in the country of their permanent residence.
