Change of Address

F-1 students are required to have a valid, local mailing address and a permanent foreign address at all times (P.O. box addresses are not valid or acceptable for this purpose) on their University Records. 

You should keep all of your addresses up-to-date in your student records. Changes in addresses (local and permanent) must be updated on your MyMemphis account within 10 days of the address change. In addition, all F-1 students are responsible for notifying the International Student Services Office to update their SEVIS records at theworld@memphis.edu within 10 days of any changes. Failure to maintain a valid local and permanent address may affect your visa status. 

Local Address

This must be a valid, residential address in the U.S. This address cannot be an address outside of the U.S., outside of Tennessee or the address of your academic department. 

Permanent Address

This must be a valid, residential address in the U.S. This address cannot be an address outside of the U.S., outside of Tennessee or the address of your academic department. 

Email

You are required to use your University of Memphis email account because the University considers this email account to be your official email address and will use it to send out important information. You must either check your University email on a regular basis or have the University emails forwarded to your personal email account. After you have set up your UofM email account, you can use iAM, the University's identity management service, to forward UofM emails to a personal email account.
