In order to ensure that your contact information is accurate and up-to-date in the SEVIS immigration record, you must maintain accurate and up-to-date contact information in Santa Clara University's Workday. This is true for current students and for alumni. For as long as you are in F-1 or J-1 status, you must maintain your contact information in Workday. Please keep in mind that you must report changes to contact information within 10 days.

Updating Your Contact Information in Workday
Here are some tips to help you update Workday correctly:
|Permanent Address||This should be the U.S. residential address where you physically reside (in other words, this is where you sleep at night)!|
This should be a stable address outside the U.S. (typically a family or close friend's address).
Usage Type should be marked Foreign Address.
|Mobile Phone||This should be your U.S. based mobile phone.|
|Primary/Home Phone||This should be a non-U.S. ("foreign") phone number. If you do not maintain an international phone number, this can be the phone number of a family member or friend.|
|Institutional Email||This will be automatically populated with your scu.edu email address. This is how the ISS team will reach you while you're enrolled in classes at SCU.|
|Primary/Home Email||This should be an email address (preferably not an scu.edu account) that you regularly check. This is how the ISS team will reach you after you graduate.|
|Work Email||Your scu.edu email may automatically populate as the "Work Email" type.|

US immigration regulations are complex and change frequently. The University strives to maintain a website that is both current and helpful, however, Santa Clara University is not responsible for students maintaining lawful immigration status; this is the responsibility of the student.
