International Student Services moving September 21


Posted on Thursday, Sep 10, 2015

International Student Services is scheduled to move to the first floor of the Pavilion during the week of September 21.  The office will be closed September 21 and will re-open to the public on September 28.  The logistics and timing of the move require ISS to operate with very limited services.  Because of the short turn-around period for the move, ISS will have a temporary set up in the Pavilion and will do renovations at a later time. 
 
During the week of the move, the ISS front counter in Bizzell Hall East and the Pavilion will be closed.  Students may submit applications electronically to iss@tamu.edu.  Sponsored students may submit the requests to sspfinance@tamu.edu.  I-20s and DS-2019s that have been processed will need to be picked up by noon on September 18 or after September 28.   It is possible that the ISS telephone lines will not be functional during the move.  ISS will check the phone messages and provide as much assistance as possible during this time period.  Staff will also be monitoring emails.  Unfortunately, it will not be possible to have student appointments during the move.  ISS may not be able to process any I-20s or DS-2019s during the week of the 21st and the move itself may cause longer processing times for some requests.
 
If there is an emergency situation that requires ISS assistance please contact our main line at 979-845-1824. We will have staff that will be reviewing the message and will return phone calls in emergency situations.
 
Thank you for your patience during the move.
