Contacting the ISSO

Towson University is open and the ISSO has returned to in-person operations.  All services may be accessed during normal business hours Monday - Friday, 8 am- 5 pm, by visiting the office in PY 408, by email or by phone. We look forward to assisting you.

We work towards minimal interruption of your services but due to a high volume of requests, please be patient if you experience a delayed response.

We ask that you not email individual advisors as this may delay the reponse.

Immigration requests may be submitted online through ISSO Portal.
