J-1 Visiting Scholar University Services

Visiting Scholars at FIU who come on J-1 (Exchange Visitor) visas are eligible to obtain university library cards, a university e-mail account, and a university ID card upon their arrival. They may use all university facilities under policies in effect for university faculty and professional staff. A University identification number (Panther ID) is issued to visiting scholars through the host department.

Visiting Scholars may also attend University events such as concerts and plays at the discounted price available to regular faculty.
