Updating Address Information if Moving in the U.S. or Abroad
International students in F-1 or J-1 status are required to continually update SEVIS about any address changes within 10 days of any move. The following guidance will assist the ISO in assisting you in reporting address updates to SEVIS.
(a) If a students is returning to home country or abroad during the Spring term, but planning to return to the U.S. in the Summer or Fall, we ask students to update in WebSIS their “Temporary” address to reflect their address abroad. You do not need to change their “SEVIS US Address” if will spend the Spring term abroad and plan to return.
(b) If a student plans to remain in the U.S. in Spring or Summer, but are moving to another address in Massachusetts or elsewhere in the U.S. – then the student needs to update their “SEVIS US Address” (in addition to the “Temporary” addresses) in WebSIS so the ISO can report the new U.S. Address to SEVIS.
If any questions arise, please contact your ISO Advisor Point-of-Contact.
