Families and Dependents
ISSS staff can give suggestions and information to scholars with families about the public schools, daycare, and children’s activities. Many services and activities are available in Bozeman for J-2 dependents, including free English classes and inexpensive general interest classes through the Bozeman Adult Education Program for adults.
Employment - J-2 spouses and children (ages 16-21) can apply for work permission. There is a cost of $410 to apply and processing time generally takes 2-3 months. ISSS staff will assist with this process, and an appointment is required.
Study - J-2 dependents may study part or full time.
J-2 dependents may travel separately from the J-1 visa holder, but need a travel signature.
