Contact us

We're happy to help you here at the Office of International Students and Scholars (OISS) at any point during your studies at Wayne State University. We are working around the clock to make sure you are supported and get assistance when needed. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have questions or want to request a virtual advising appointment.

We offer remote advising appointments daily. You can schedule a remote appointment by calling or emailing our office. Making an appointment is the best way to ensure that you are able to meet with an advisor, but walk-in advising is also available on a first-come, first-serve basis Monday-Thursday between 8:30 a.m. and 12 p.m. and 1:30 p.m. and 5 p.m. Please be sure to bring your current I-94, I-20 or DS-2019, and passport with you whenever you meet with an OISS advisor.
