Welcome, स्वागत, సుస్వాగతము, Welkem, 欢迎, 歡迎, bem-vindo and Hoş Geldiniz to ISC

The International Scholar Center (ISC) provides specialized immigration services to assist in the process of the hiring of extraordinary international faculty, scholars and staff employees at the University of California, Riverside (UCR).  It is our intent to build strategic partnerships on and off campus, domestic and foreign; to broaden and deepen UCR’s international initiatives resulting in stronger international services. In doing so, it is our hope that we can make the transition to working and living in the United States as smooth as possible and that your stay at UCR is a positive and productive experience. 
We ask that you feel free to use the resources of our office when necessary to enhance your experience or to address any immigration concerns. Our staff is accessible, knowledgeable, as well as friendly. We may be reached by telephone, e-mail or by personal appointment.


Immigration and Tax Scam Affecting International Scholars There has been a recent increase in reports of fraud involving individuals posing as immigration and tax officials requesting personal and bank information from international scholars. Please remember that the International Scholar Center, Internal Revenue Service (IRS), and U.S. immigration officials will never request credit card, Social Security, or banking information over the phone. Refer to the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) and Federal Trade Commission websites for tips on how to avoid scams or report any instances of fraud.
