The Office of International Students and Scholars Services (ISSS) will be offering their first pre-arrival session, Navigating the Visa Interview on April 17 from 8–9AM CST.

ArgoVisa, a company staffed by former consular officers, will help students understand how the visa interview works, answer their questions, and offer general advice. This session will be led by Josef Burton, a former US consular officer who served in India and as a Farsi-language visa officer at the embassy in Turkey. We highly encourage you to attend.

Register here. Please note that this session will not offer 1:1 coaching and cannot guarantee that a visa will be approved.
