Change of Address

Students must notify the Office of the University Registrar of their U.S. address within 30 days of initial enrollment at The Ohio State University and within ten days of any subsequent address change so that International Affairs can report it to SEVIS. This can be done via the Registrar's on-line services website at BuckeyeLink. The CURRENT ADDRESS field is the one that is reported to U.S. Immigration as your current U.S. address. Please note that you MAY NOT use a P.O. BOX for this address; SEVIS requires the street address where the student physically resides. Students who temporarily move to another location to participate in Curricular Practical Training (CPT) must update their local address via the Buckeyelink. Students on Optional Practical Training (OPT) should also continue to update their address on the Buckeyelink.

NOTE: Failure to update your address in the required time frame may result in termination of your immigration status.
