Find your advisor

In order to provide the best customer service across the board, we have completed the first of a two phase reorganization of our advising assignments. Our new structure will ensure all advisors are cross-trained to serve the immigration needs of both students and scholars, providing a single point of contact for departmental questions and ensuring the shortest possible wait times for walk-in consultations.

H-1B scholars will transtition to the new structure in June 2017. Until then, their H-1B advisors will stay the same.

As ever, our goal is to provide you with accurate and timely assistance and to ensure you have the smoothest hiring and immigration experiences possible.
