Mailing Address

The address listed on your application is considered your permanent address. NIU will be sending your mail to that permanent address. So, it is very important that as soon as your have a local US address, that you update your permanent address with this current local US address through your MyNIU account.

Also according to Federal Immigration Regulations, you MUST notify the University of any change in your US address within ten days of the change. At NIU, the only way to notify the University is to go to Registration and Records, or by updating your information through your MyNIU. The Regulations require you to provide the actual, physical address where you live in the DeKalb area; it is not permitted to use a Post Office Box number or a Departmental Office address.
