Global Engagement

For UR Faculty & Administration: Hosting a Visitor

Departments and faculty members are the starting point in the process to host a visiting student or scholar, and we assist by facilitating the internal process and external communication with the prospective visitor.

During this process, departments will communicate primarily with representatives from:

  • The Office for Global Engagement (Global)
  • The International Services Office (ISO)


For international visitors, it can take six months—sometimes longer—to formally complete the pre-arrival process. Because of the multiple University and government offices involved, we recommend you begin the visitor student/scholar registration process as early as possible. For domestic visitors, the general placement process averages one to three months.

To determine which on-boarding process best suits your visitor, please select one of the below:
