Why Do I Need to Fill Out This Form?

In order to maintain your F-1 student status, your SEVIS record must be registered by ISS at the beginning of each semester. Then students must take initiative in "confirming" their SEVIS record for its accuracy. ISS will put a hold on students' records who failed to comfirm their SEVIS records.  

Student Information



This number can be found at the top right on the first page of your I-20. It has 10 digits and stars with N000

Addresses

International Students are required by federal law to notify PLU within 10 calendar days of any changes to their U.S. mailing, physical (if different from mailing) and international address.
