International Student and Scholar Services is happy to announce that we can now conduct our virtual advising using the University of Iowa’s Swipe system! Appointments will still be conducted virtually via Zoom, but this change will make it even easier for students and scholars to sign in and connect with an ISSS advisor to get quick answers to immigration and other questions.
Zoom and In-Person Advising Hours
9:30-11:30 a.m. (U.S. Central Time) Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday
1:30-3:30 p.m. (U.S. Central Time) Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday
Please Note: Hours will be modified for the week of November 20-24 to accommodate the Fall Break Meal and University Holidays. The schedule for the week will be as follows:

Students and scholars can virtually sign in no more than 30 minutes before the start of advising. Swipe will not let you sign in more than 30 minutes before advising begins or after it ends.
In person walk-ins are in 1111 University Capitol Centre (UCC). To sign in for Zoom Walk-ins, visit https://apps.its.uiowa.edu/swipe2/site/isss/signin/virtual/walkin (you should bookmark that link!) and click on the button with the arrow. After entering your HawkID and password, select the reason for the appointment. If you do not have a HawkID, please call us at 319-335-0335.
After you sign in, just wait! Once an advisor has been assigned to you, Swipe will show a green button so that you can launch Zoom and ask your questions. Please remember not to close your browser tab until Zoom launches.
