Temple University is pleased to welcome international scholars and employees to the city of Philadelphia and Temple's campus. Temple University is very proud of its long tradition of involvement in fostering international education. The current faculty, staff, and students are always eager to have new faces and perspectives added to the foundation of the institution.

International Student and Scholar Services (ISSS) at Temple is available to assist Temple University-sponsored international scholars and employees with immigration matters as they prepare to arrive in the United States. ISSS encourages visitors to peruse the ISSS website for information about Temple, Philadelphia, the ISSS office and immigration requirements.

Please note that ISSS does not determine job titles (paid/unpaid) or salaries. We are the final stage in facilitating the appropriate visa classification once the department has determined these factors and a prospective employee has been identified. Appointing a foreign national to a position at Temple University can be accomplished only if both federal regulations and the University's own policies permit it. If a foreign national is eligible to be appointed to a specific position at Temple, the University will serve as "non-immigrant visa sponsor" and will issue forms, file petitions with the USCIS, or submit other documents and applications as appropriate to the visa type being arranged.
