If you want to meet with an advisor for a longer time, we suggest you make an appointment. If you are a first-time visitor to our online appointment system, you need to create an account using the "registration" button. If you have already created an account, just enter your E number and make an appointment with an advisor using the "Appointment Locator" function. It is easy and quick to make an appointment, and available anytime you need!
The OIS Graduate Assistant for Arabic speakers has advising hours from 12:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays to discuss any embassy-sponsored issues. No appointment necessary.
Be sure to visit the OIS resource area and pick up information concerning many topics such as immigration, academic and career support, traveling and things to do.
