Virtual Drop-in Advising

Drop-in Advising hours are changed for the week of July 26-30.  Tuesday and Friday hours are cancelled.  Instead we will hold one session on Thursday, July 29, from 1:00 to 4:00. 

The office of International Student and Faculty Services is happy to share that we are now offering virtual drop-in advising. On Tuesdays and Fridays from 1:30pm – 4:00pm EST you may join a Zoom meeting with an international student advisor to discuss F or J immigration questions you may have. These drop-in sessions will last no more than 15 minutes, so if you have an inquiry that you think will need more time, please email isfs@ohio.edu to schedule an appointment.
