International Students are required by federal law to notify UW Tacoma within 10 calendar days of any changes to their Local (U.S. Mailing), U.S. Physical (only if different from Local/U.S. Mailing) and Permanent (Foreign) addresses.
Students have access to update Local Address by logging into MyUW. Go to the "Quick Links” on the left side of the main page and then click on "Change Student Address.". Then students MUST also notify ISS by filling out, Local Address (U.S. Mailing Address) Update form and have ISS staff update Local Address (U.S. Mailing Address) in SEVIS.
If your Local (U.S. Mailing) address and U.S. Physical Address (where you actually live) are different, please fill out U.S. Physical Address Update.
Permanent address can only be updated by the Registrar's Office. It is highly recommended that permanent address in your home country and matches your SEVIS Foreign Address. To view your current permanent address on file, please log into your MyUW. Go to the "Quick Links” on the left side of the main page and then click on "Change Student Address." To view your SEVIS Foreign Address, please contact your International Student Advisor. To have your SEVIS Foreign Address updated, please fill out this form.
