Non-U.S. citizens/non-U.S. permanent residents enrolling in the MIIS Translation and Interpretation Short Programs must be maintaining a nonimmigrant U.S. visa status which allows them to enroll in courses full-time.  Do not enter the U.S. on a tourist visa (B-1 or B-2) or visa waiver (ESTA), as these do not allow for participation in the MIIS Translation and Interpretation Short Programs.  If you do not currently have a U.S. visa status that allows for enrollment in courses in the U.S., MIIS will sponsor you for J-1 visa status, which will allow you to participate.  This process takes at least 2 months.  Please contact ISSS by e-mail at: immediately to ensure that you have an appropriate nonimmigrant status to be enrolled as a participant in these programs.
