If you are interested in coming to USF as a visiting scholar to teach or conduct research, you will need to contact the appropriate department. Please review the different departments at USF and contact them directly.

You can read more about the different academic departments at USF by going to the "Destinations" tab on any USF webpage and selecting the department. A prospective scholar will need the support of the USF department to sponsor their visa status. What the scholar will do while at USF will determine the terms of the program and the visa category. Once a department has agreed to sponsor you, you will begin the process for getting your paperwork to apply for your visa status. It is not possible for ISSS to start this process before the department has officially agreed to be the visa sponsor.
