Lulu Dong ISSS Advisor

Walk-In Advising:

Monday, Tuesday and Thursday 10:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m., Wednesday 1:30 - 3:30 p.m.

Walk in advising hours are for routine questions regarding employment, travel, extensions, CPT/OPT, withdrawing from a course, applying for a Driver’s License or Social Security Number, or other routine matters. ISSS cannot process your application or request during walk-in advising hours. If you are submitting an application for processing and you have questions about the application, please come during walk-in advising hours. Otherwise completed applications can be dropped off/picked up outside of walk-in advising hours.  


If you have a more complex matter that you would like to discuss, or if you are dealing with a difficult personal or academic situation, that should be discussed in an appointment, not during walk-in advising.
