The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) requires all international students and scholars in F-1 or J-1 status to report changes of address within10 days of any move. This includes the period of Optional Practical Training (OPT) and Academic Training (AT). During the OPT period specifically, students are also required by law to report employer information each time they accept a position as well as any period of unemployment. Please use this form to make the necessary changes to the information that CISS is required to report to DHS.
The CISS staff members update the OPT records every month. You should receive an e-mail confirmation when your OPT information has been updated in SEVIS. If you do not receive a confirmation e-mail, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire if your OPT information has been updated.
