ISSS Mission

International Student and Scholar Services provides students and exchange visitors with immigration advising, workshops, and orientation, as well as social and extracurricular activities. ISSS extends its services and support to international faculty and research scholars and their dependents. Through collaboration with other departments and organizations, ISSS advocates on behalf of international students to ensure their academic, personal, and career goals.

ISSS Office Schedule

ISSS is now working remotely.  What does that mean?

  • Most questions can be answered by email.  We are checking messages frequently.
  • We are accepting documents and signatures digitally (email). We can accept digital signatures on all of the documents found on our forms page.
  • Students can still call us from 1:00 to 3:00 pm weekdays to speak with an advisor. 
  • Advisors can schedule appointments with students by phone or videochat.  Please email the advisor directly to request a phone or video appointment.
  • In-person advising is only available for urgent cases, by appointment, in order to protect the health and safety of our students and the whole Dayton community.  
  • We will still be receiving and sending mail from Rike Center 204.  I-20s, DS-2019s, and other immigration documents will be mailed to you as necessary.  

For urgent cases, students may also call our emergency line at 937-848-0073.  If your questions are not urgent, we ask that students call our office at 937-229-2748 or email us at first.
