A "visiting intern" is an external graduate student who is satisfying curriculum course requirements that are counted toward the completion of the individual's degree from another accredited institution. The purpose of the "internship" is to provide the student experiential learning in the field for which s/he is preparing.
Process for Hiring a Visiting Intern
- Complete the Visiting Intern Appointment Letter.
- Submit a comprehensive job description provided by the Faculty/Staff mentor supervising the visiting intern.
- Collect CV or resume and official transcripts or, if non-U.S. institution attended, copies of non-U.S. transcript with translation.
- If international candidate is currently in the United States on an F1 student visa from another university the candidate's international office will need to issue the individual some sort of authorization such as Curricular Practical Training (CPT) which would be listed on the candidate's 1-20 SEVIS form.
- Forward all above information to Nina Marie Campellone in the Postdoctoral Fellows Office and ISSS for review and approval.
Note: In order for the candidate to receive work authorization (CPT), the candidate would need to provide their international office with the Visiting Intern Appointment Letter. In this case, submit all required materials with the exception of the work authorization. Once the Graduate School approves the appointment, the individual can provide their international office with the appointment letter in order to receive work authorization.
Requesting Guest Access
- Non-employee visiting interns can obtain "Guest Access" when an employee sponsors a request by logging in to TUportal, clicking on "Guest Access Request System" under TUapplications, and completing the requisite information.
- Granting Systems Access and Guest Cards to Guests provides additonal information on guest access.
- Non-employees who are granted access will be assigned a TUid number, which must be reported by the business manager to Nina Marie Campellone, Project Manager, Postdoctoral Fellows Office, and ISSS, if the individual is a foreign national.
