Services for International Students and Scholars (SISS) serves approximately 2,200 UC Davis international scholars from nearly 100 countries.  The scholar community includes short-term visiting scholars and postdoctoral scholars, as well as full-time career researchers and faculty. Host departments work closely with SISS to invite international scholars and ensure they have completed all required visa and immigration paperwork, the first step in the successful integration of an H-1B worker, J-1 Exchange Visitor, or other international visitors within our community.
