ISSS Advising Services for Students

Email or call your ISSS Advisor to have a quick question answered. Include your first name, last name, and UM "C" number in your email.

Schedule an appointment (30 minutes) with your ISSS Advisor for issues that require more in-depth discussion. To schedule an appointment, email your ISSS Advisor directly at the email address provided below. Include your first name, last name, and UM "C" number in your email.

You may walk-in without an appointment to see your ISSS Advisor on the following days and times provided your Advisor is available. Otherwise, you may have to wait until she is free or schedule an appointment. The benefit of an appointment is no waiting involved. Walk-in meetings are up to 15 minutes maximum.

Walk-in Days & Times:
Monday: 2:00 pm to 3:30 pm
Tue., Wed., & Thu. 10:00 am to 11:30 am AND 2:00 pm to 3:30 pm
Friday: 10:00 am to 11:30 am

We do not prepare, review, or sign documents and applications during walk-ins and appointments. Meetings with your ISSS Advisor are for advising purposes only.

No walk-ins or appointments to discuss off-campus employment unless you have completed the online ISSS F-1 Employment Session: www.miami.edu/employmentsession.

No appointment needed to drop off documents, pick up documents, or have your documents copied for your file.

We are open Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
