Change of Address

Address Requirements

The university requires students to keep a permanent address on file.

  • Undergraduate students: this is the address of the parent(s) or guardian(s) with whom the student resides.
  • Graduate and professional students: this is the address of a person through whom you can always be contacted.
  • This is the default address for bills.
  • The university will consider mail that has been sent to an address on file to be delivered to the student.

In compliance with federal law, the university is required to provide students with the opportunity to provide the address and phone number of a person who can be notified if campus police determine that a student has been missing for more than 24 hours. The university also requires students to keep an emergency contact on file who can be contacted if a student is involved in an emergency.

Undergraduate students who are on leave of absence, study elsewhere or who have withdrawn from the university are requested to provide a forwarding address for their campus mail at Mail Services.
