Participation in the Student Intern subcategory is available only to foreign students currently enrolled and pursuing a degree at a postsecondary academic institution outside the United States, and whose U.S. internship will "fulfill the educational objectives for his or her current degree program at his or her home institution." 

 As per the U.S. Department of State regulations, the hosting Temple University faculty mentor must evaluate the progress and performance of the J‐1 Student Intern prior to the completion of the internship. All internships require a final concluding evaluation. The internships lasting longer than six months also require at least one additional evaluation undertaken at the midpoint of the program. The hosting department must retain J‐1 Student Intern evaluations (electronic or hard copy) for at least 3 years following the completion of each intern’s program.

A copy of each evaluation must be sent to ISSS within 5 business days of the midpoint evaluation and  ten business days of the program end. ISSS is requires to keep the evaluations for three years after the J-1 student Intern departs. The form is available here
