Domestic Visitors

The Global Visitor Program will assist with onboarding and provide support and resources for domestic visiting students, collaborators, and researchers. Domestic visitors include U.S. citizens and U.S. permanent residents. The relationship an individual maintains with the University and the purpose of the visit is initially evaluated to determine whether the visitor will be enrolled as a non-matriculated student or appointed in one of the schools in one of several visiting categories (i.e. faculty, post-doc, etc.).


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

How can I come to Rochester as a domestic visitor?

Throughout the Global Visitor Program, you must complete a series of forms in order to prepare the paperwork for your arrival. Each school within the University of Rochester has specific appointment procedures for visiting faculty and post-docs, and Global Engagement will refer these cases appropriately. Domestic visiting students may review the instructions and apply here. For questions on onboarding procedures, please contact
