How appointments work while ISSS is closed due to COVID-19
ISSS advisors are available for appointments via Webex as a video chat or call-in meeting. Before your scheduled appointment time, you will receive a Webex appointment confirmation, and a link to join the meeting at your scheduled time. If you do not have video/audio through your computer or phone to chat, you can also call in to the meeting through your telephone to the phone number provided in the meeting confirmation email.

Other regional campus appointments

When should I make an appointment instead of coming to drop-in advising?
Students who would like to work directly with your assigned program advisor should schedule an appointment, rather than visit ISSS during drop-in hours, to discuss your questions. Appointments are also needed to discuss complex issues related to your status, such as changing visa status, problems following visa rules, or academic or personal matters that would require a meeting longer than 15 minutes.
