International Services is currently not offering in-person advising or walk-in services. Virtual Advising through Zoom provides the opportunity to discuss questions about your visa status directly with an international services expert. Our advisers are available at the times advertised above to provide virtual advising through Zoom. You will join the waiting room and then be admitted by an IS advisor to answer your question(s) in a private virtual setting. If you have a more complicated question that will take longer than 15 minutes, please email email@example.com to schedule a separate call with an advisor. All students with questions related to CPT and/or OPT are requested to join the specific sessions outlined below.

The schedule for the upcoming OPT Q&A sessions is posted on our website here.
