International Faculty & Staff Services

In response to the OUHSC COVID-19 Return Plan, HR guidelines continue to encourage temporary telecommuting where possible until further notice.  Human Resources will continue to update the university’s Telecommuting Guidelines as appropriate. Those guidelines are available here:

While the International Faculty and Staff Services (IFSS) office remains open, we may continue to operate on rotating schedules and this may delay our normal processes. 

This applies to all three campus locations.  In our efforts to keep our campus safe and healthy, beginning March 26 th, we will only schedule meetings via telephone or Zoom.   To schedule a meeting, please contact us by email.

The International Faculty and Staff Services office provides information about bringing international faculty, staff and scholars to the University of Oklahoma, Cameron University and Rogers State University. 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 five campuses governed by the University of Oklahoma - Board of Regents. From here, you can find information for hiring departments and international scholars.


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.

Consider This

Volunteering and moonlighting refer to activities outside the scope of the foreign national's employment authorization and may not be allowed. Review more information about volunteering and moonlighting.
