Update Your Address
The U.S. Department of Homeland Security requires international students and scholars to update their U.S. address information within 10 days of any change. Failure to update your U.S. address with Clark University and the U.S. government may have a significant impact on your immigration status.
To update your address, please refer below to the visa type and status that applies to you.
Note: Updating your address with the U.S. Post Office does not meet the address update criteria.
If you have questions about updating your address, please reach out to ISSO@clarku.edu.
Current F-1 Students and J-1 Students
Currently enrolled students must update their U.S. address using ClarkYou. The ISSO will update SEVIS with your address. It is very important that the ISSO have a record of your physical address.
- If you live in a Clark University residence hall, your U.S. address will be automatically updated by the University — you do not need to update your U.S. address.
- You do not need to update your U.S. address if you leave the U.S. for short periods (e.g., holiday breaks). However, you must update your U.S. address within 10 days of returning to the United States if you move to a new address.
F-1 Students on Post-Completion and STEM OPT
If you are an F-1 student on post-completion Optional Practical Training (including the 24-month STEM Extension of OPT), you do not need to update your current U.S. address in ClarkYou. Instead, update your contact information directly through the SEVP OPT Portal.
