Change of Address Requirement

You are required at all times to maintain an updated address with the college. You may not use a post office box.  

Updating your address

1.  Please come to the ISO office to change your address whenever you move. If you fail to do this you will be out of status. The DSOs at the ISO office will update your address within the SEVIS System.

2.  Please bring the following essential documents with you. If you are missing any of the documents or if they are incorrect, please contact the ISO office.

  • Passport 
  • Visa

  • Form I-20* 

*Form I-20 A-B, Certificate of Eligibility for Nonimmigrant (F-1) Student Status-For Academic Students, is the document you received from Diablo Valley College when you were officially admitted to our program.
