open all the windows in the house

Important F1 Regulation Reminders
ISP staff are available in the ISP office in room 325, Elizer Hall, to review your travel documents and provide signatures.
Update your U.S. address in OPUS
Staying in the U.S. this summer? Be sure to update your OPUS local address with your summer address.
The federal immigration rules (8 Code of Federal Regulations, § 214.2(f)(17)) require that F1 students report any change of address within 10 days of the change.
To do this, you will update your address in your OPUS student account. That data will then be uploaded to your digital SEVIS I-20 record.
Email OxISP@emory.edu with any questions about this.
