Reporting USA Address for Immigration Purposes

  • Students and scholars on F1 or J1 visas are required to report their USA address to the Department of Homeland Security through your designated school official/responsible officer (Office of International Education staff). U.S. immigration regulations require all J1/F1 students to report a USA address for SEVIS purposes (no PO boxes) within 10 days of reporting to school and within 10 days of moving. 

    Please log in to your MyIUP account to update this information as soon as possible to ensure your SEVIS (Immigration) record is updated.
