International Faculty and Scholars

All of us at the International Student and Scholar Services (ISSS) look forward to assisting you throughout your stay. Various departments at the University of Mississippi invite international professors, scholars, researchers and other staff to the University. UM sponsors various visa types, including J-1, H-1B, TN, and O, as well as employment-based Permanent Residency petitions, and ISSS processes all visa and immigration paperwork for the University of Mississippi.

ISSS also provides comprehensive assistance and support for our international community. ISSS works closely with various campus and community partners to ensure that international faculty, scholars, employees and their families can achieve their personal and professional goals while at UM.
