Research Appointments & Visa Information
Information For Scholars

Once you have established a relationship with a Northwestern faculty member in the McCormick School of Engineering, a member of the CSC staff will contact you to initiate the paperwork required for your appointment and visa. Only upon request from the faculty member or department administrator will an appointment or visa process be initiated.

Visa Paperwork

During this process, you will be responsible for filling out the appropriate visa paperwork provided by the CSC, paying any applicable fees, and later obtaining a visa stamp from your local US embassy or consulate.

Processing Time

Please note that processing your appointment and visa paperwork may take considerable time, so please plan ahead and contact us in advance if you have any questions or experience delays of any kind in your home country.

We welcome you to the McCormick School of Engineering at Northwestern University and hope that you have a rewarding and successful stay with us!
