ISSS Listserv

This listserv is ideal for those who interact with international students and scholars in F-1 or J-1 status at the University of Iowa.  Reminders of immigration-related regulations and deadlines will be sent throughout the year to enable  academic advisors, faculty, HR staff, and others to help keep track of the legal needs and deadlines of their international students and scholars.

Assessments and Surveys

View the results from various assessments and surveys conducted by ISSS and other entities regarding our international students.

ISSS Advising Walk-In Hours

Students will see the advisor on duty on a first-come, first-served basis. We ask that faculty and staff not direct students to come speak to specific ISSS staff members.  The advisors on duty will assess the situation and provide assistance or involve other staff if necessary.

Current walk-in hours may be viewed on the main ISSS page.
