Students Advisement & Walk-in Hours

You can talk to an International Student Advisor during designated walk-in hours Monday through Friday, 1:00 pm-3:00 pm. If you are unable to make it during these times or require an extended session, please schedule an appointment by phone at 505.277.4032.

International Student Advisors are available at GEO to help you with any questions you might have. The Global Education Office (GEO) is required to report information about your immigration and academic status to the US government via the Student and Exchange Visitor Information System (SEVIS). For this reason, you MUST contact our office whenever you make changes in your academic program, your address, ID numbers, name, etc. The consequences for not reporting this information can be very severe, so it is extremely important that you consult with us if you make a change or are unsure if a change in your circumstances needs to be reported.
