Invite an International Scholar

Step 1: Complete a Visitor Packet. This includes the following:

Step 2: Send the Complete Visitor Packet to the Office of Research and Economic Development- Mailstop 9722, Attn: Sandy Williamson.

Step 3: ORED will coordinate with the Office of Research Security and International Services Office in support of issuance of DS-2019. After the Restricted Party Screening is completed and no negative results are received, appropriate MSU authority will sign visitor agreement. Original DS-2019 request form will then be sent to ISO.

Step 4: After ISO receives the DS-2019 request form from ORED, a DS-2019 will be issued and departmental representative will be contacted to pick it up.

Please note, all new requests for DS-2019s should be sent to the Office of Research and Economic Development instead of directly to International Services.
