The Visiting Scholars program fee is $1,500/month (subject to change). The fee defrays the administrative and other costs of the Visiting Scholars Program to the Department and the School of Dentistry. Before any scholarly activities can be formally started, the Visiting Scholar is expected to pay the fee for the entire anticipated length of stay within one week of arriving at the University. Preferred payment method is wire transfer or check. Unfortunately, we cannot accept cash or credit card payment.
Fees are not refundable. A non-refundable processing fee of $800 for the Visiting Scholar (subject to change) is required. The processing fee covers cost for the J-1/DS2019 visa document through the UW International Scholar’s Office (ISO), criminal background check through A-Check America and associated miscellaneous expenses. If the Visiting Scholar requires visa for J-2 dependent, an additional processing fee of $400 per family member is required.
