The office reviews the application materials to determine eligibility and then either approves or denies the request. If approved, Graduate Admissions establishes a student identification number (EMPLID), which will be emailed to the visiting student researcher's department and then "term activates" the researcher for the appropriate quarter. Complete visiting student researcher application requests are reviewed and processed in the order in which they are received. All materials must be submitted at least 30 days prior to the starting date of the appointment. Visa processing takes additional time. Please factor these considerations into the timing of your request.
