Important Information Regarding ISSO Services

Please note: the ISSO will operate remotely and will continue all services and advising during the university’s transition to remote, online learning. Call-in advising hours will continue as planned (Tuesday through Thursday, 2 p.m. - 4 p.m.). All student-driven e-form requests will still be processed within the typical ISSO processing timeframe. Any changes to ISSO operations due to COVID-19 will be immediately communicated to our international students and scholars. For more info., see our FAQ for international students.

UMass Lowell’s proactive efforts to update the university on its ongoing efforts to monitor and prepare for impacts related to COVID-19 (coronavirus) include messages to the campus community.

Visit the UMass Lowell Coronavirus Updates webpage for the most recent information.
