Stay in Touch!

The ISS office will continue to be working during this time.  We will be working remotely for the most part, but we are available to serve you. Emailing the ISS is probably your best option to communicate with us at Please remember that you will still need to maintain your legal status in the United States throughout this rough time. Please make sure you are in communication with your advisor in ISS and with your faculty host or supervisor.

Please stay safe and healthy.  Contact us with any question you might have.
