Requests by Sponsoring Departments

Visa Services Online Payment

The International Students & Programs Office at UC San Diego charges fees to departments for its services in issuing documentation for non-degree international students to pursue studies at UC San Diego. The recharge fee can now be paid online by completing the Visa Services Online Recharge Form (below).

Simply log-in under "Business Systems" with your Single-Sign-On user name and password and complete the questions. An e-mail with transaction contents will be sent to the departmental administrator making the transaction, the budget person indicated in the transaction by the departmental administrator, and to ISPO.

F-1/J-1 Recharge Payment

The online payment process allows departments to pay the service fee and/or RUSH fee by index numbers on behalf of F-1/J-1 students. At this time payment can only be accepted via department recharge.

Regular processing time for J-1/F-1 student applications by the International Students and Programs Office is 10 days, provided all required information/documentation has been submitted by the sponsoring department; "RUSH" fee service reduces processing time to 5 days (often fewer).

If you have any questions, contact us by phone at (858) 534-3730.
