Non-residents (persons who are not U.S. citizens or permanent residents) must be cleared for employment before an offer of appointment is made. The International Student/Scholar Office assists departments with the processing of immigration paperwork for non-resident faculty. If any top candidates are non-residents, it is advisable that the department chair or hiring authority contact the Director of the International Student/Scholar Office (x77746) as soon as possible to discuss potential employment status and eligibility matters.
The fees associated with the processing of paperwork for employment eligibility are to be paid by the initiating department.
All appointments of non-resident faculty are contingent upon the employee’s maintaining appropriate visa status.
