Faculty Staff Visa Services

Welcome to the FSVS Website


The University of Southern California (USC) has a long history of attracting outstanding talent in diverse fields from around the globe as faculty and staff.

Faculty/Staff Visa Services (FSVS) is a division of the Office of the Vice-Provost for Faculty Affairs.  At its inception, FSVS was created to provide the specialized services required to facilitate the hiring of international faculty and staff, and to provide a centralized resource for information regarding immigration and the hiring process.

It is our hope that we can make the transition to working and living in the United States as smooth as possible for this important constituent of our university community.
