ISSO Morningside, Faculty and Scholar Services

About Us

We work with Morningside academic departments in bringing international faculty and researchers to the university and overseeing their stay.

Our team is responsible for the university's compliance with the J-1 Exchange Visitor program for researchers, professors and student interns.

We file nonimmigrant petitions with USCIS (Immigration and Citizenship Services) for other visa types used by our Morningside academic community.

We provide orientation programs for Morningside J-1 scholars and one-on-one training for Morningside department staff members with whom we work.
