For all general enquiries, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. All IPS staff monitor this email regularly. So, do not email any IPS staff on their personal email.
To ensure that we can resolve your doubt accurately and quickly, include the following information in your email:
- Your name
- Your status (i.e., F-1 visa, J-1 visa, family member of current student, Fulbright scholar, etc)
- Academic standing (i.e., graduate, undergraduate, alumni, etc)
- Your M-number (if you are a current student)
- Reason for contacting (explain in details)
For any questions about CPT (co-op/internship), your first point of contact should be Career Services. IPS only processes your CPT I-20 after Career Services has authorized your co-op or internship. If Career Services specifically mentions that your question pertains to IPS, send an email to email@example.com. Include as much information as possible (your name, M-number, academic standing, etc).
For questions about OPT (including STEM-OPT), please email firstname.lastname@example.org. The IPS DSO who processes OPTs works only remotely and this email is the best way to reach them. Even if you email email@example.com with OPT-related question, we would just be forwarding your email to firstname.lastname@example.org and that just delays the response time.
For information related to admission procedures (i.e., how to apply, how to send transcripts, English proficiency requirements, etc), please contact Undergraduate Admissions (email@example.com) if you are applying to undergraduate level or Graduate School (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you are applying for a Graduate program.
