Administrative Fee for Visiting Scholars

While we recognize the intellectual value of hosting academic faculty visitors for extended visits to our departments and research groups, visiting scholars place an added burden on our administrative staff and systems.  The resources that must be deployed to arrange travel, visas, keys, cards, and space are not negligible, and are a significant cost to SEAS departments.  In line with processes at peer AAU institutions, a fee of $1,000 will henceforth be payable to the host SEAS department for each visiting scholar if (a) travel visa support is required, and / or (b) the visit is for longer than 10 working days.  This policy applies only to faculty visitors, not student visitors.
