The International Student and Scholar Office (ISSO) helps UNC Charlotte departments hosting international faculty and scholars by providing assistance in choosing the appropriate immigration classification, information about the obligations of the sponsor, visa request forms, and a variety of additional information in our "How-To" Guide for Departments. Departments are encouraged to review the How-To guide and to contact ISSO for guidance and assistance throughout the process of sponsoring international faculty and scholars.
Contact Maddy Baer, International Scholar Advisor, when anticipating the appointment of an international applicant.
