Immigration Services

The immigration and visa services office within the MUSC Center for Global Health (CGH) handles all immigration and visa sponsorship related matters, including:

  • Processing nonimmigrant visa sponsorship cases and preparing visa related documentation and applications for international students, scholars, and staff.
  • Providing information, guidance, and assistance to MUSC personnel on immigration matters.
  • Advising and assisting international students, scholars, and staff sponsored by MUSC.
  • Maintaining compliance with federal, state, and university regulations regarding international students, visiting scholars, and employees.

The immigration and visa services office is located on the fourth floor of the Harper Student Center (attached to the Wellness Center) at 45 Courtenay Drive. In order to ensure adequate service for the MUSC international community, appointments are required in order to meet with an immigration advisor.
