Virtual Advising Notice

ISSS Advising takes place virtually for the convenience and flexibility of our diverse global community. Through virtual advising, ISSS can meet with international students, scholars, and staff members currently located in both Philadelphia and overseas. If your individual circumstances necessitate an in-person appointment, please inform your assigned advisor.

Please use iPenn to sign up for an appointment. You will receive a confirmation email containing the link to join your virtual advising appointment at your scheduled time. Please ensure that you provide a valid email address at which you will be able to receive the online meeting link.

ISSS Advising Structure

Each international student and scholar at Penn has a designated ISSS advisor, who is the go-to person for immigration questions that cannot be answered by visiting the ISSS website or in a quick advising session.

ISSS provides guidance based on current regulatory information and is not a substitute for legal counsel.
