Hosting Department Information

Academic departments and our office work with scholars from around the world who are interested in coming to the US. Before coming to the US, Scholars must be nominated by an Academic Department at UNC. 

There are various types of scholars: 

  • International Faculty who would like to teach courses or engage in research or professional development
  • International Graduate Students who would like to engage in research or dissertation work and will not enroll in course work
  • Visitors that need university wide access and services
  • Visitors that will receive payment of any type

Scholars and Academic Departments are expected to complete the Hosting Department Agreement together, which can be provided to the Center for International Education for review. 

Regulations governing Exchange Visitors are established by the US Department of State.
