Immigration Advising and Appointments

Home / Students / Appointments & Advising

Do you have questions about your immigration status, working in the U.S., or adjusting to the American culture?  We are here for you.

There are several ways you can communicate with an advisor: email ISSC@asu.edu, walk-in advising, scheduled phone or in-person appointments.

Email Advising

If you cannot find an answer on our website, please send an email to ISSC@asu.edu from your ASU email account.  One of our immigration advisors will get back to you in as little as 48 hours for most inquiries. Keep in mind that several of our processes, such as applying for employment authorization, are cyclical and may require additional time during peak season. 

Walk-in Advising

Walk-in advising is available at the Tempe, Downtown, Polytechnic and West campuses.  These appointments are first come, first served and sessions are limited to 10-15 minutes.
