Providing Immigration support to faculty, staff, and international scholars.

This office provides various services to J-1 Scholars/Post-Docs/Professors/Interns who bring to FAU valuable expertise through international education exchange. Global Academic Services (GAS) is part of the Center for Global Engagement, and Academic Affairs. 

We oversee employment matters of non-immigrant work visas such as, H-1B, O-1, TN, E-3, and employment-based permanent residency requests. GAS serves as a liaison between the hiring departments and FAU contracted immigration firm. In addition, this office is also responsible for regulatory compliance of the Short-Term Scholar, Intern, Research Scholar and Professor J-1 visa program categories under the Exchange Visitor Program as governed by the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. The office also promotes the Fullbright Scholar Program that offers FAU faculty grants to lecture, conducts research, or participate in seminars around the world.
