Announcement: Extension of ISS Processing Time

Beginning Monday, March 29, 2021, the processing time for all requests submitted to the ISS office will be up to one month. 

We are adjusting our processing time to better align with the reality of our current workload. Additionally, we are working to balance changes in staffing by hiring and training additional ISS staff to support our work in serving UW international students.

ISS Processing Time General Guidelines

  • Processing requests submitted after March 29 may take up to one month.
  • ISS staff will continue to strive to provide accurate and prompt responses to your requests.
  • ISS cannot accommodate expedited processing requests – please plan ahead! 
  • Time sensitive requests will be reviewed and prioritized by ISS staff

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work to provide timely and accurate services.
