Congratulations on joining the University of Pittsburgh!

While arriving in the United States is a very exciting time, it can also be very confusing and frustrating, especially if you are not aware of what to expect. We’ve created this section of our website to help new international faculty, staff, and other visitors manage your arrival in the US.

Please read all of the pages listed on the right side of this page in order to best understand your responsibilities and helpful information for before you arrive and while you are visiting the United States on a J-1 visa.

Welcome to the international community at Pitt!
