Make an Appointment with an International Student & Scholar Advisor

 

OISS staff members are here to answer questions, offer advice and help you make the most out of your time at Tulane University. We are specialists in F, J, H, and TN immigration issues. We are trained in intercultural communication and cultural adjustment and have extensive experience supporting international students and scholars.

Even though OISS advisors have knowledge of all of the areas of support that international students and scholars may need, we do have specializations. Please read below in order to choose the advisor who can best support your needs.

Before attending an advising appointment, we ask that you spend some time reading through our policies, procedures and program list on the OISS website. If you need same-day assistance or are not able to make an appointment at a date and time that is convenient for you please email oiss@tulane.edu so that we can help you accordingly.
