Non-Penn Sponsored International Students and Scholars

Welcome to Penn!

We are glad to have you join our rich and diverse international community. If you are a Fulbright or other program recipient and your visa/immigration documents were issued by a sponsoring program other than Penn, you need to schedule an orientation meeting with Dr. Rudie Altamirano, ISSS Director. He serves as the Penn administrative liaison for your respective sponsoring agencies.

To schedule an orientation meeting, please email ISSS or call 215-898-4661. Please bring your passport, DS-2019 and other relevant immigration documents. We are looking forward to meeting you.
