There are several ways to consult with an International Student Advisor.
Advisor On Call
Beginning September 6th, an on-call advisor will be available in person or by phone Monday through Thursday from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Students will be seen by an advisor in the order in which they check in with the front desk staff. During these hours, priority will be given to students appearing in person. Phone calls may be directed to 701-777-4231 and will be taken or returned as the advisor on call is available. You can meet with any of the advisors during this time, not only your primary advisor.
The advisor on call may be seen for travel signatures, Social Security letters, or other short questions. More extensive matters should be done by appointment.
**There will be no Advisor On Call hours during the summer. Please follow the directions below to schedule an appointment during summer break.
