Visiting Student/VISIT

If you will have a currently enrolled student visit your lab, they will need to come through the University's VISIT or VISER program. Please talk to the HR manager regarding the VISIT/VISER programs and their rules and regulations. VISIT stipends may not be paid on an externally funded award unless the award sponsor specifically approves payment of a stipend to an international visitor.
