  • Visa and immigration requirements for scholars
  • Potential tax implications for host department/scholar, if compensation is offered
  • Potential Office of Business Operations paperwork for scholar, if compensation is offered

2.  Request & receive the required supervisory approval -

  • Dean and Department Head approval is required, if compensation is offered
  • Department Head notification required, if no compensation is offered

3.  Complete the required Host Entry in the UNI International Visitor Registry 

4.  Coordinate with OIP secretary to complete final preparations for your visiting scholar’s successful arrival on campus.
