Institute registrants continuing on to a program of study within the University of Washington School of Law may use their student visas.
Visiting Scholars at the law school may use their scholar visa.
All other participants should enter the U.S. on a Business Visitor visa (B-1) since the Institute program is not a certificate/degree program but rather a two-week educational conference. More information about the Business Related B-1 visitor visa is available through the U.S. Department of State's Business Visa Center FAQs. We will be happy to provide you with a formal letter of invitation to facilitate the visa process.
Insurance and Housing
All international students and scholars are required to maintain adequate health insurance while attending a program of study at the University of Washington.
Institute registrants continuing to a degree program in the University of Washington School of Law will be required to separately purchase UW Student Health Insurance for the year. More information
Since coverage under the UW mandatory student health insurance does not begin until the start of the formal academic year in late September, it is strongly recommended that students purchase other short-term coverage for the gap period. On the ISS webpage, several option are linked under Other Insurance Plans.
