Changes to OIE Walk-in Advising, Effective Immediately!

Georgia Tech, including the Office of International Education (OIE), is closed December 24th - December 28th 2018, and January 1st 2019. OIE will be open on December 31st. OIE will reopen on January 2nd and ISSS will resume regular walk-in advising hours for all international students and scholars. Walk-in advising will be available on Wednesday, January 2 from 1pm- 4pm.

Last date for Fall 2018 International Students and Scholars walk-in advising:
Thursday, Dec. 20 from 1-4 p.m.

No International Students and Scholars walk-in advising available:
Friday, December 21 and Monday, December 31

If you are an international student or scholar with an emergency (not related to international student travel documents) that needs attention during the time the Institute is closed, please contact the Georgia Tech Campus Police at 404-894-2500. They will be able to connect you to the Dean of Students on duty.


Due to significant changes to OIE’s International Student & Scholar staffing, International Student Advisors will not be available for walk-in advising on Wednesday afternoons (1pm- 4:30pm) effective immediately through the end of May. Advisors will be available for walk-in advising Mon/Tues/Thurs/Fri from 1pm- 4:30pm. You may also meet with advisors for appointments on Mon/Tues/Thurs mornings as normal.

We truly appreciate your patience with us regarding response time to phone calls, emails, and e-form processing during this time of transitioning. We look forward to growing our advising team and becoming fully staffed again soon!

Thank you for your understanding.
