The International Students and Scholars Office (ISS) 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.
