Change of Address

Procedure for Student/Scholar/Faculty to Change Address/E-Mail Form:

Federal SEVIS regulations require F and J students, scholars and faculty (including students who have graduated but are on optional practical or academic training) to notify the ISSS within ten days of any change in your U.S. address.

By reporting this change through BU Brain, it will be updated into SEVIS and you do not have to file a separate AR-11 form with the Department of Homeland Security.

You may also use BU Brain to report a new e-mail address.

Here are the instructions for using BU Brain to make updates:

1. Click on the following link to begin the sign-on process.
