Host Department Responsibilities

UW-Platteville Professor

When a University of Wisconsin-Platteville department invites a visiting professor from abroad for the purposes of teaching, observing, lecturing, consulting, and/or research, a J-1 visa is the appropriate visa for the visitor. The International Student and Scholar Services (ISSS) office will need to issue a Form DS-2019 for the visiting professor so that s/he may apply for a J-1 visa at a U.S. consulate.

NOTE: ISSS would prefer a minimum of 3 months processing time for J-1 visiting professor requests from the hosting department from the time ISSS receives the request until the desired begin date of the visiting professor’s program.
