Check here if I am your assigned ISS advisor. Our Fall 2022 service schedule is in effect beginning September 6, 2022. Please see below for details.

1. Drop-In Advising. Available Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday (virtual and in-person). Drop-in advising is available on a first-come, first-served basis and will be limited to 10 minutes per student. Use drop-in advising for questions that can be resolved in this timeframe. I strongly recommend you search the ISS website prior to requesting advising services. You may find your answer there!

    Current Drop-In Advising schedule:
    - Mondays and Tuesdays: 2:00 to 4:00 PM (US Central Time)
    - Thursdays: 9:00 to 11:00 AM (US Central Time)

2. Schedule an Appointment. If your situation or questions require more than the 10 minutes limited at drop-in advising, please schedule an appointment with me. These are reserved for students on my caseload only. If I am not your assigned ISS advisor, I will cancel the appointment request. Appointments will be held virtually via Zoom only. When requesting the appointment, please provide complete details about your questions/concerns. You will receive an email confirmation from me with a Zoom link when your appointment request is accepted.

***Please note appointments and drop-in advising should not be used for status updates on pending applications. If your application status is "Submitted - Under Review by Assigned Advisor" it is being reviewed and you will receive an email when it is processed!***

3. Information Requests. Submit your detailed written questions to your assigned ISS advisor in Terra Dotta.  Click here for a short video tutorial on sending an info request. Please allow 3-5 business days for a response.

When sending an information request, include the following: 

  • Your preferred name
  • WiscID number
  • Complete details about your question/concern.
We work as a team to respond to you, even if I am out of the office. Send an information request to your assigned ISS advisor only. This will help prevent duplicate efforts and keep communication streamlined. 

4. Phone ServicesProvided by our student peer advisors Monday through Friday. Immigration advising is not offered by phone.

Thank you and I look forward to working with you!
