Updating Your Current Address

All F-1 and J-1 students are required to report and maintain a local U.S. address with the Department of Homeland Security within 10 days of arrival for new students and within 10 days of any address change. This must be your local U.S. residential address complete with room number (if you are living within a residence hall) or apartment number. Campus departmental addresses, P.O. Boxes, and foreign address are not acceptable addresses for immigration purposes.


New and Current SIUE Students:

Report or update your mailing and billing address through CougarNet. SIUE Office of International Programs will forward this address electronically to the Department of Homeland Security through SEVIS.

SIUE students on F-1 OPT:

Go to OPT Reporting Form and report within 10 days any changes to the following information:

  • Name
  • Residential address
  • Phone and email address
  • Employer name
  • Employer address
  • Employment status


The information you enter on this web page will be stored at SIUE Office of International Programs and is used only for reporting to SEVIS, as mandated by federal regulations.

Students who fail to report this information as required will be in violation of their F-1 status and may endanger their opportunities for future benefits in the United States.
