Main Campus Advising

This is the quickest and most efficient way to meet with an advisor. During Advising Hours, an advisor will always be available to talk to students, faculty, or staff who walk into the office or call the front desk. Advising Hours are available on our main page at International center phone number 312-567-3680.

Downtown Campus Advising

Downtown campus students may walk-in to meet with an International Student Advisor or to pick up documents. During peak times there may be a wait to see the advisor. Morning advising hours usually have less of a wait. If you would like to pick up documents at the Downtown Campus, please make sure to contact the International Center Front Desk by 3pm the Wednesday prior. Due to heavy traffic flow it may take two weeks to have your document brought to the Downtown Campus. New office hours: Alternate Thursdays 9:30AM - 11:30AM and 2:00PM - 4:00PM
