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 eCampus. 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 eCampus. Please keep in mind that you must report changes to contact information within 10 days.
Here are some tips to help you update eCampus 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)!|
|Foreign Address||This should be a stable address outside the U.S. (typically a family or close friend's address).|
|Mailing Address||This is not required, but can be used if you want SCU to send mail to a U.S. address that is different than where you live.|
|Mobile Phone||This should be your U.S. based mobile phone. This should also be checked as your "preferred" phone number.|
|Perm/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.|
|Campus 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.|
|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. This should also be checked as your "preferred" email address.|
How do I update my address with ISS?
When you update your Permanent or Foreign address in eCampus, ISS will automatically be updated and so will your SEVIS immigration record.

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. Further, resources and links do not constitute endorsement by Santa Clara University.
