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.  Please come to the ISAS office to change your address whenever you move. If you fail to do this you will be out of status. The DSO's at the ISAS office will update your address within the SEVIS System.  Please complete our online form to request a change of address.
The essential documents you should have when you arrive are:

  •  Passport
  •  Visa
  •  Form I-94 (Arrival/Departure record)
  •  Form I-20 

If you are missing any of the above documents or if they are incorrect, please contact the ISAS office.

Form I-20

The 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. You used the Form I-20 to apply for an F-1 visa at a U.S. Consulate or Embassy abroad or to transfer from the previous school, college or university you were attending in the U.S. The SEVIS I-20 Form has three parts--- Page 1 has all of the information that is put in SEVIS concerning your stay at DVC. Page 2 is the instructions and page 3 is for travel and employment endorsement.
