UMD: A Globally Connected University

Chat with an ISSS Advisor

  1. Type your name below where it says "Enter your name here." Then click "Chat" to begin a chat session. You will see "I'm not logged in." if the service is unavailable at this time.
  2. Chat is designed for short, immigration-related questions and to set up an appointment with an advisor.  Based on the complexity of your question, you may be advised to come in and speak with an advisor directly.
  3. No international admissions questions will be answered. We are not able to provide answers to questions about admissions requirements, receipt of documents, transcript evaluation, or transfer credits.  For admitted students who are in the process of obtaining/ shipping an initial I-20, please contact with questions.
  4. At times, Chat may be quite busy with an advisor replying to multiple students at once.  Your patience is appreciated.

Due to technical difficulties chat is currently unavailable.
