Global Engagement

International Visiting Students

Visiting Students pursue activities of an educational or academic nature, often to further their undergraduate or graduate studies.


For international visitors, it can take six months—sometimes longer—to formally complete the Global Visitor Program. Because of the multiple Rochester and government offices involved, we recommend you begin the process as early as possible.

How can I come to Rochester as a visiting student?

Throughout the Global Visitor Program, you must complete a series of forms in order to prepare the paperwork for your arrival, including immigration documents if you are not a U.S. citizen or permanent resident.

Complete all the steps in the checklist below.
