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.
