Visiting Scholars and Visiting Graduate Students

Processes, Procedures and Resources for Facilitating Arrangements for Visiting Scholars and Visiting Graduate Students 

As a renowned public university, the University of Michigan attracts a great many academic visitors each year. The use of established, formal processes helps facilitate arrangements to sponsor and host these visitors allowing them to participate in campus life and programs while they are here. The procedures and processes vary based on the nature and duration of the visit, the sponsoring unit, and other factors. Hosting units process all new and renewing Visiting Scholar applications independently. Effective November 1, 2016, hosting units will also process all new and renewing Visiting Graduate Student Applications independently. Information about the application process, links to the application forms and helpful resources are provided on this page.
