Connect with OISS

As part of the University's action to prevent and slow the spread of COVID-19, all advising and programming will take place virtually.

For COVID-19 related questions, please check our COVID-19 Resources, especially the FAQs by audience, as many of your questions may already be answered there.

OISS remains committed to supporting our international student and scholar community during this health emergency. Although the building remains closed, OISS is still operating at full capacity - but remotely - in support of the international community. While we must do a few things differently, we are available, as always, to answer your questions and address your concerns.
