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.

To view your designated ISSS advisor and their email address, please log on to iPenn

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