The Catholic University of America



International Faculty, Researchers, Staff, and Visitors

International faculty, researchers, staff, and visitors are a vital part of Catholic University's intellectual community, providing diverse perspectives and cultural insights in the advancement of academic scholarship. CUA sponsors scholars for a variety of different nonimmigrant classifications, depending upon the purpose and nature of their visit. All requests for university sponsorship officially begin in the host department or School. Although ISSS handles the immigration processing, it is based upon the sponsorship information provided by the host School or Department. These pages are intended to provide information needed by CUA departments and their international scholars when bringing internationals to campus to engage in scholarly activity.
