Transition from ISD to OISS Connect
OISS is transitioning to a new database system called OISS Connect after using ISD for almost a decade. We have been working with a focus group of host department administrators to test and develop the system. We will be making the transition in stages, inviting specific Yale Departments to use OISS Connect. In the mean time please continue to use ISD - you do not need to use the new system until you have recieved training and an invitation to register. During this transition process, should you have any questions about our database systems please contact Parker Emerson.
Hosting international faculty, staff or trainees in your department comes with the normal university protocols for any new hire/appointment, in addition to a few additional details.
How to Invite a Scholar
Before making a request for visa sponsorship, the host department needs to secure an academic appointment through either the Office of Postdoctoral Affairs, the Faculty of Arts and Sciences Dean's Office or the Yale Medical School Office of Faculty Affairs.
Visa categories most often used by Yale international scholars. There is also a very brief explanation about the category and an indication of how the category is used for Yale appointments.
