Address and Employment Reporting Reminders

As we get further into the spring semester, we want to remind you of the following reporting requirements:


* Changes of residential address must be reported within 10 days. International students are required to notify the ISO promptly when their address has changed. You can report this information at any time using the appropriate online registration tool for your UR division. Students pursuing post-completion employment, please use the appropriate reporting tool online. If you are currently living outside the US, please do NOT change your US address for now; it should remain the last place you lived while in the country.


* All F-1 and J-1 students must maintain full-time registration each term. If you will need to take a reduced course load, please speak to an ISO student advisor before you drop below full-time enrollment.


* Alternate work arrangements should be documented. If you are currently authorized for F-1 Practical Training (CPT or OPT), please review your I-20 and/or the SEVP Portal for continued accuracy. If you suspect changes should be made or have questions, please contact ISO. For students on OPT or J-1 Academic Training (AT), updates can be submitted to ISO using the appropriate reporting tool online.


* Keep your immigration & other records up-to-date. If you anticipate changes to your immigration record, please check our Forms & Links page for access to guidance, forms, and relevant deadlines. ISO will continue to accept, and process immigration requests and recommendations as needed!
