1. If you have not updated your mailing address in Oasis please do so!
OIE has had several calls that students are not receiving correspondence
sent out by the Office of International Education. The reason students
are not receiving correspondence from OIE is because your current
addresses have not been updated. Please remember - INS regulations state
you must file an AR-11 form every time you have an address change. If
you have any questions or concerns, please call the Office of
International Education at 542-7903.
