Faculty & Scholars

The International Education Services office will provide assistance in obtaining appropriate working visas for individuals who hold academic  appointments from the Provost’s office.  Individuals with visiting or short term appointments will be offered Exchange Visitor J-1 visa status.  Faculty members on tenure-track or long term appointments will be assisted with obtaining H-1B status.  In some cases, special circumstances or a person’s nationality will make other options possible.  To discuss visa options for international faculty and research scholars, please contact Dr. Brian Souders at <souders@umbc.edu> or by calling 410 455-2624.
