Change of Address Notification Requirement
International students who change their residential address (the location where they live) are required by the Student and Exchange Visitor Information System (SEVIS) to update their address within 10 days of the change.
Post Office (P.O.) boxes or work addresses are not acceptable. A zip code is required by SEVIS. The zip code must be limited to five digits. Every time international students move or change their residential address, they must report the new address to the Office of Research Support and International Affairs (RSIA).
If you move, please complete the change of address form and notify RSIA of the change. If you have any questions about reporting your change of address, please contact your International Student Advisor (for F-1 students) or the Coordinator of Immigration Compliance and International Procedures (for J-1 students).
Note: The Form AR-11SR is no longer required of F-1 and J-1 visa holders, provided the change is reported in the SEVIS system.
