The ISSO is thrilled to have international scholars as part of the Brandeis community! 

To help answer your questions, the ISSO has prepared the following information:

The information provided by the ISSO pertains only to international scholars and department administrators at Brandeis University, as it reflects both immigration regulation and university policy. 

This information is not meant as a guide for international scholars and department administrators at other institutions.

Please note, in some instances, our scholars may face circumstances that require the attention of an immigration specialist with qualifications beyond the purview of the ISSO. Scholars who need a referral to qualified legal resources for such circumstances should contact the ISSO.

The Finance Office has specific guidelines for individuals who contemplate working outside the US.  Please follow this link for more guidance.
