J-1 Exchange Visitors in a scholar category  must be appointed in HRMS in a non-paid role if they:

  1. are not receiving WashU funding
  2. and will be at WashU for longer than 30 days

This is required to allow the OISS to comply with requirements for reporting address, phone, and email information to SEVIS. Additionally, it helps ensure that the department is tracking their non-employees in a non-paid role.

It is important that the appointment be closed in HRMS in a timely manner when an NPR completes their program with WashU.
