  • Hosting Department

    Hosting an international faculty member/scholar requires documentation and attention to strict procedures. Due to the visa regulations and requirements, U.S. embassies and consulates require foreign scholars to have personal interviews prior to receiving a visa. In order to help bring international faculty members/scholars to UW-La Crosse in a timely manner, the Office of International Education (OIE) encourages each hosting department and college to:

    • Invite scholars as early as possible. Allow a minimum of three months from the date OIE receives the International Visitor Approval Form to the anticipated arrival date of scholars.
    • Make sure the International Visitor Approval Form is complete and all supporting documents are attached before submitting to OIE.
    • Notify OIE as soon as your scholar arrives on campus and bring him/her to OIE to check in within ten days of his/her arrival.
    • Notify OIE within ten days of the completion of the scholar's program.

    If you have any questions or need additional information, please contact Diane Sasaki.
