OIS Immigration Check-in, Services and Advising Information for Fall 2020

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Office of International Services physical office space will remain closed to in-person visitors for the fall 2020 semester. All services will continue to be provided virtually until further notice.


International students new to UIC who have physically entered the U.S. should review the Immigration Check-in information posted on our website to learn how to complete the process virtually. No in-person visit to submit hard copy documents is required from students to check-in with OIS this fall.


Instructions on how to request a virtual appointment with an OIS Advisor, including immediate zoom advising during the first two weeks of the fall semester, are also posted on the OIS website.


OIS remains committed to providing the highest quality document processing, immigration advising and cultural support programs to the UIC international community. While we are certainly more used to welcoming you to our office in-person, we encourage you to connect with us for a virtual appointment or event online this fall. We are here for you!
