The Office of International Services will return to the office effective July 6, 2021. With our return to campus, our office will provide select in-person services as well as updating our current office hours. Our transition back to full in-person services will happen gradually to ensure a safe and measured transition to campus. Please review the information below for our operational updates.
Office Accessibility (Phone & Document Pick-Up)
Until further notice, in-person visits are limited to confirmed appointments only. Our office is accessible every day by phone and email. Our phones are serviced 8:00 am – 12:00 pm and 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm Monday through Friday except Wednesday, which will be 8:00 am – 12:00 pm and 2:00 pm – 5:00 pm to allow for our staff meeting.

Expanded Document Pick-Up (Appointment Only)
OIS will continue to issue and distribute I-20 forms electronically per SEVP guidance. DS-2019 forms and some I-20 forms for specific scenarios that require a document with an ink signature will be issued as paper forms. The students and scholars who require paper forms will receive direct communication about mailing options or appointment options to collect their documents from 111 Lampe Dr (formerly Daniels Hall).

Virtual Appointment Scheduling
Appointments with advisors will remain in a virtual format by phone or Zoom meeting until further notice. We have transitioned to a general appointment schedule from July 6, 2021 to September 3, 2021 where you will be assigned to the OIS advisor on duty for that day.
To schedule a virtual appointment with an advisor, please visit our Contact Us page. Please remember that appointments should only be used for more complex inquiries that may take 15-20 minutes to discuss. If you have a quick 5-10 minute question, please utilize our virtual drop-in hours. For questions on applying for OPT or STEM OPT, please use our virtual OPT Q&As which are offered via zoom weekly on Tuesdays at 1:00 pm and Thursdays at 10:00 am.
