Before a DS-2019 is issued, UCLA must be satisfied that prospective EVs have sufficient funds to carry out their primary activities at UCLA. The table below shows the current minimum amounts required to qualify for J-1 status at UCLA. Those who fail to comply with such requirement become ineligible for UCLA's J-1 sponsorship and will be terminated from the program.

  • Spouse : $6,000 per year / $500 per month
  • Each Child : $2,667 per year / $222 per month
