Are you an international scholar at Caltech? Yes, if you have a Caltech appointment as a postdoctoral scholar, visitor, visiting associate, instructor, staff member, or faculty member, regardless of whether you are located on campus, or at one of the off-campus sites such as LIGO or Palomar. The ISS team is ready to provide immigration and adjustment support once we have information about your Caltech appointment.
The ISS office is located in a small house on the north side of campus. Please come and visit us. If the door is locked, just ring the doorbell.
ISS is currently working remotely. Please use email.
