Virtual Drop-In Hours

OIS offers virtual drop-in advising hours to provide international students, scholars, and dependents an immediate response to brief questions they may have. Individuals can learn more about virtual drop-in advising procedures here. The office does not hold drop-in hours on Wednesdays.

10:00AM – 11:45AM10:00AM – 11:45AM1:00PM – 2:45PM1:00PM – 2:45PM

Please note that walk-in advising is limited to brief exchanges, such as questions about changing majors, etc. For topics which require more than 5 minutes with an advisor (e.g. change of status, employment issues, transfer questions), please call the OIS to schedule an appointment.


Need assistance with more in-depth or personal immigration advice? Appointments with advisors will remain by phone or Zoom meeting until further notice. Due to staff transitions, we will have a general appointment schedule until further notice where you will be assigned to an OIS advisor.  To schedule an appointment with an advisor, please click here and complete the requested details on the calendar appointment slot.

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. If you receive the answer to your immigration question in drop-ins or via e-mail before you are able to meet with an OIS advisor in a meeting, please cancel your upcoming appointment so we can open the time up for another student. An OIS advisor will not automatically cancel a future appointment after we correspond with you.

For questions on applying for OPT, please use OPT Q&As which are offered weekly on Tuesdays at 1PM and Thursdays at 10AM. More information about OPT Q&A can be found on our OPT page.
