  2. Provide name, address, email, title of visitor, dates of visit, who the visitor is collaborating with or name of the project and information as to whether an invitation letter is needed.
  3. Determine space availability
  4. The Business Office will assist with visas, if necessary and will contact the visitors for information needed for no-cost appointments
  5. The Business Office will initiate an appointment, depending on the length of the visit
