Find My ISS Advisor

ISS advises based on a caseload model. Every international student has an International Student Advisor assigned to them based on their college/school and major.

You may type your major in the search bar or look for your college or major listed below to find your advisor.

How to work with your ISS advisor

  • Learn more about your advisor by visiting the Meet the Staff page.
  • Message your advisor through a Terra Dotta Information Request. Please do not send an email to our main inbox.
  • Make an appointment with your advisor through Terra Dotta.
  • Be patient. We process your immigration requests in teams. Your ISS advisor may not be the advisor processing your request. Do not message your advisor about the status of your immigration request; this will cause processing delays.

Review our Terra Dotta Tutorials page for more information!
