Make an Appointment With a VISA Advisor

The staff of the VISA Office is happy to schedule an appointment to meet with you to discuss any questions or concerns about your visa status. Please read through the information below to find the right advisor for your questions, and to make an appointment with them. Appointments are available both in-person and via video call; please read the calendar carefully to determine which kind of appointment you are booking.

For quick student questions, you can chat live with an advisor during our Virtual Advising Hours, or stop by our office during regular office hours, Monday-Friday, 8:30am to 5 pm. 

In addition, be sure to check out our Forms and Resources section to see if your question can be answered on our website (for example, if you are a student who needs a travel signature).
