You may use the information below to calculate the program fees for your J-1 Teacher Program. The fees may be paid by any party (teacher, host school, attorney, etc.) unless otherwise noted.

In addition to the program fees, you may also be responsible for all living expenses, such as housing, food, transportation, etc. In the event that your annual salary in the U.S. does not cover all of your living expenses, especially if you have family members joining you, you should have personal funds saved up and available to use.

Initial eligibility assessments are complimentary prior to engaging in the full application review, in order to make sure that you are initially qualified to enter the program. Passing the initial eligibility assessment does not guarantee sponsorship, which can only be granted after an extensive review process.

Please note: Teachers Council does not work with 3rd party recruiters and therefore there are no additional 3rd party fees associated with our J-1 Programs.
