Advising Services

As we adapt to COVID-19 and the return to in person classes this year, we strive to take what we learned from working remotely and serving the international community from our homes. We will still offer many services remotely, so that we can reach a greater number of our community in their comfort. If you prefer to use zoom in a meeting please let us know.

Immigration Advising Services

We generally have two methods for our KU community to meet with an immigration advisor, the first is Drop-In/Walk-In Advising and is used for quick advising or if you have a quick question. The second is for appointments where a student or scholar has already submitted a eform request in iHawk and now needs that request processed. Also if you have questions about your situation and you think it will take longer than 15 minutes please schedule an appointment.

August & September 2022

During the week of August 15 we will have a majority of the ISS check-in sessions. We will only have virtual and walk-in advising on Wednesday, August 17 and Friday, August 19.

Virtual/Drop-In Advising

Generally, Drop-In Advising is offered virtually Monday through Friday, 1:30pm to 4:00pm using Zoom. Please email us at to get the zoom link and password. Please include your name and topic you wish to discuss with the advisor.

In-Person/ Walk-In Advising

Walk-In Advising is offered in-person Monday through Friday, 1:30om to 4:00pm in Strong Hall, room 126.


These drop-in/walk-in sessions are for general and specific questions for currently enrolled students and active scholars. Inquiries NOT handled during drop-in advising:
