Letters of Agreement for Honoraria:
Faculty members who desire to invite guests to participate in academic events associated with the Architecture Program must follow these procedures:
1. Review the budget for the course / event program under your supervision to determine availability of funds.
2. Contact the guest to confirm availability and to negotiate the honorarium.
3. When you have confirmed the guest's availability and agreement to the honorarium, gather the visitor information listed on the Honorarium Request Form.
4. Fill in the form and submit the completed form to the Krista Johnson at least one week prior to the event.
5. Faculty members who initiate this process will be designated "Faculty Host" and will serve as the primary point of contact/hospitality for the guest prior to, during, and
after the visit. If person other than the individual initiating the honorarium request is to serve as the "Faculty Host," this information should be included in the Honorarium
6. The Director's office will process the Honorarium Request Form, create a Letter of Agreement, mail it to the guest, and copy it to the "Faculty Host."
7. Honorarium checks will be processed after the event has taken place and guests should expect to receive compensation within 30 days following the date of the event.
Proper visa required for International Visitors:
All faculty hosts should be aware that the University cannot disburse funds to foreign visitors unless proper visas have been obtained in advance of the event. Complete
information for foreign visitors can be found at: http://www.intprog.umd.edu/ies/Faculty/j1programs.html
Please share this information with foreign guests (even if they are currently in the U.S., at the time of arranging an event):
1. PRIOR to your visit to the U.S., please obtain the appropriate immigration status from Immigration and Naturalization Services (INS) UPON ENTERING THE UNITED
STATES. Failure to obtain the proper immigration status will prevent UMCP (School of Architecture, Planning, and Preservation) from providing any honoraria or
reimbursing ANY travel expenses.
2. Please note that a passport alone is not sufficient evidence to determine an alien's immigration status. Accordingly, the passport should be used only in conjunction
with the appropriate INS forms (I-94; I-551) that identify immigration status.
3. The following types of visas may be reimbursed for travel and subsistence expenses (if pre-approved by the University):
A-1/A-2, B-1, F-1, H-1A, H-1B, H-2, H-3, J-1, J-2, K-1, K-2, O-1, O-2, P-1,
P-2, P-3, Green Card, Refugee, TN, and WB.
4. Foreign visitors with one of the following types of visas may NOT receive any travel payments while in the United States: B-2, F-2, H-4, O-3, P-4, and WT.
5. If you do not obtain a visa prior to entering the United States, your visa status defaults to B2 and honoraria/reimbursement will not be allowed.
Further information on all UMCP Travel polices and other pertinent information is available at http://www.dbs.umd.edu/travel/.
Honoraria for Jurors on Interim, Midterm, and Final Reviews
Jurors from the Washington, Baltimore, Annapolis Region:
Our long standing policy is that local participants in juries should not receive honoraria for their participation in juries, unless there are exceptional circumstances.
However, AIA members may be granted CES units for participation in juries. Additionally, local participants should be mailed parking passes in advance of their visit. If
your individual studio budget permits, you may offer your guest lunch or dinner (which ever is appropriate). As always the University will not reimburse faculty or guests
Jurors from locations at a distance of over 100 miles from College Park:
Prior to the beginning of each semester, a studio budget will be established by the Program Director that will give faculty a clear idea of the funds available for use during
the semester. Faculty should plan to use these funds in a responsible manner. Occasionally, at the conclusion of the semester, additional funds may be made available
(typically to upper level and thesis studios) to support guest reviewers.
