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 Global Visitor Program as early as possible. For domestic visitors, the process averages one to three months.

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