Updating Address in My.SDSU and Making Changes

Entering your u.s Address and making changes

  • Log into your my.sdsu portal. Click the profile tile


  • Select Address in the list on the left
  • Scroll down and click the + on the Local address to add your US address (here in San Diego). This is the address you must enter as soon as you arrive in the US and before September 1 for immigration purposes. If you don’t, the ISC won’t be able to register your SEVIS (I-20 or DS-2019) record as Active and this could lead to termination of your SEVIS record.
  • Follow the format below for the CORRECT U.S. address format. An incorrect address will result in a problem with registering your SEVIS record.
  • Do not enter your name in address line 1
