Welcome International Researchers and Scholars! We look forward to working with you while you are at Hamline. Your primary contact regarding your research or scholarly work will be the academic department or specific Hamline school (School of Business, Law, CLA, or Education) that invited you to Hamline. However, all J-1 immigration advising and other related support will be provided by the International and Off Campus Programs office. Please peruse through the International Researcher and Scholar portion of our website to find information regarding your J-1 immigration status and other resources offered by our office. You may also want to review the US Department of State's J-1 visa website for additional information. If you are a Hamline faculty or staff member and your department is interested in hosting a J-1 Scholar, please refer to "Checklist for Hosting a J-1 Scholar" and the "Application to Request a J-1 Scholar" found in the Faculty and Staff section of the IOCP website.
