International Student and Scholar Services (ISSS) strives to serve our O-1 scholars/employees at the University of Colorado Denver with the highest service. Since O-1 scholars will be employees of CU Denver, the majority of the services are part of the already available campus resources for CU Denver employees.
An O-1 VISA is reserved for an individual who has extraordinary ability in sciences, arts, education, business, or athletics. This extraordinary ability must have been demonstrated
by sustained national or international
acclaim. The scholar must be coming
temporarily to the United
States to continue to work in her or his
area of extraordinary ability.
Furthermore, this person is within
the small percentage of those who have arisen to the very top of their field or endeavor. For more information on this see the link below:
