Below is information for faculty members and departments interested in hosting a visiting scholar. We must receive the Prospective Scholar Information Form, the Request for Form DS-2019, and the Department Chair Authorization Form in order to process a DS-2019, which the scholar must have in order to apply for a J visa. If you have any questions, please feel free to call (330-672-7980) or email (isss@kent.edu) ISSS.

For an overview of the scholar request process and the documents that we need, please read our Scholar Request Guide.
