Hosting Department/CollegeHosting an international faculty member/scholar requires extra documents and different procedures. Due to the new visa regulations and requirements, U.S. embassies and consulates abroad require foreign scholars to have personal interviews prior to receiving a visa. This procedure has caused many delays in receiving visas. In order to help bring international faculty members/scholars to UW-La Crosse in a timely manner, the Office of International Education 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 our office.
