To better protect students, faculty, and staff from COVID-19, all appointments will be remote. The advisor will contact you in advance with instructions.

After you log in to myUH, you should be able to schedule an appointment with an ISSSO advisor by selecting "Advising" and then "Appointment with ISSSO". View our guide for additional instructions on how to schedule an appointment.
