International student advisors help students understand immigration regulations, how these regulations impact their studies, and how to comply with these regulations. Advisors also advise students regarding immigration benefits such as employment on and off campus, travel inside and outside the US, and other related issues. Due to office closure as a result of COVID-19, advisors are currently available for virtual immigration advising Monday through Friday from 1 to 4 p.m. Note that advising hours are for brief discussions (10–15 minutes). For longer discussions, please schedule an appointment by emailing an advisor directly.
To add yourself to the queue for virtual immigration advising, please complete the Front Desk Check-in form. If you are taken to a page that says “Successful Check-in” after completing the form, you have been added to the queue. Enter either your UT student ID number or your UT email address and select the way you would prefer an advisor to contact you (Skype or phone). To set up Skype for Business, follow these directions from OIT.
Once your turn arrives, an advisor will contact you via Skype or call you at the number you list in the form.
