Inviting Undergraduate Interns, Researchers and Visitors for the Summer or Academic Year

Please note the following differences for inviting a student, intern or visitor to campus during the summer versus the academic year:

Summer Session

  • Departments should work with the Office of the Summer Session to admit students as part of a Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) Program. The Office of the Summer Session will work with ISSA to generate students' immigration documents.
  • On-campus housing is generally available to students during the summer term through the Office of Housing.
  • Tuition billing is based on credit hour at the summer tuition rate. A student enrolled in a zero-credit course and no other courses during the summer will incur no tuition charges. 

Academic Year

  • Departments should contact the staff at International Student & Scholar Affairs, who will generate the student's immigration documents.
  • On-campus housing is generally not available to undergraduate researchers, interns or visitors during the academic year. Academic departments are responsible for providing students with off-campus housing information.
  • Tuition billing is based on any enrollment - even if students are enrolled in zero-credit courses only. A student enrolled in a zero-credit course and no other course during the fall and spring term will still incur the full tuition charge

If you have any questions, please contact ISSA at issa@nd.edu or 574-631-3825. You may find additional information on the Undergraduate Researchers, Interns and Visitors page.
