International Faculty & Staff Services

The International Faculty and Staff Services (IFSS) office provides information about bringing international faculty, staff and scholars to the University of Oklahoma, Cameron University, Rogers State University, and Oklahoma City Community College. The staff provides immigration services to academic and administrative departments in obtaining and maintaining the appropriate immigration status for the employment of international faculty, scholars and staff. Our office serves all six campuses governed by the University of Oklahoma - Board of Regents. From here, you can find information for hiring departments and international scholars.

Beginning July 19, 2021, the IFSS staff will return to normal in-office operating hours.  This applies to all three campus locations.  We are available for in-person meetings and by telephone or Zoom.  To schedule a meeting, please contact us by email or by phone


All requests for the employment of foreign nationals at the University of Oklahoma must be processed through IFSS. Only the IFSS staff is authorized to sign the legal documents and forms required to sponsor international scholars and staff.
