Summer Work Travel Program

Check-In / Validation

As a J-1 program participant, in order to work and travel legally in the United States, you must validate your program by Checking-in with CSB within 10 (ten) business days from arrival in the United States. This is an important step to ensure that your current U.S. address is accurately reflected in the Student Exchange Visitor Information System (SEVIS). Failure to Check-in on time will lead to a program termination.

To be in a good standing, CSB recommends that you check-in the next day after arrival. Once you Check-in, the SEVIS system will show that your visa is current and that you are lawfully present in the United States and authorized to work.

Please submit only accurate information. If you are not sure of the addresses, please ask and confirm the information before submitting it. Never provide information without being certain that you are in fact providing accurate and/or updated information.

Important: Please read carefully all the terms of the form before submitting it as they will also remind you of some of the crucial rules you must observe in order to be in a good standing in the program. Once submitted, your will also receive an electronic copy of the form - please keep it for your records.

Yes, I am personally submitting the Check-in information. I am also confirming that the information I have provided in the form is accurate according to my best knowledge and that I am in fact working and living at the addresses I have provided above. I also confirm that I understand that by intentionally submitting false information I will be terminated from the program.


I understand that during my program I must report any change in my housing address within 10 (ten) business days of the change.  Failure to report the changes on time will lead to a program termination.


I understand that during my program I must have permission (in writing) from CSB in order to change my primary host employer. CSB must investigate any claim before taking a decision. Failure to have permission will lead to a program termination.


I understand that during my program CSB must confirm any new, replacement and additional (second) job placements before I may start work. CSB will normally verify (vet) such jobs within 72 hours and will confirm the result in writing. Starting work at unverified and unapproved jobs will lead to a program termination.


I will maintain contact with CSB for the entire duration of the program. As required by the program regulations, I will receive a monthly evaluation request by email every 30 (thirty) days after the Check-in and I am required to respond to CSB within 10 (ten) business days.  Failure to reach back to CSB on time will lead to a program termination.
