Changing your Address

This form displays your preferred address. Any changes you make will first be verified by Regent before it is used for contacting you. If you have not set your preferred address with WebAdvisor before, then your preferred phone number and e-mail address may not appear. The Effective Start field (MM/DD/YYYY) indicates when you want us to start using this new address information. If you do not fill out this field we will assume that the address change should take effect immediately. The Effective End field (MM/DD/YYYY) is provided for you to indicate when this new address will no longer be valid. This field should be used when you will only be at the new address for a certain period of time (e.g., vacation address, sabbatical address). Please remember to always provide us with a current address.

Alternatively, you can fill out an Address Change form at the Student Services desk.

Note: You have complete control over your e-mail address. Any changes you make in that field will take effect immediately. However, please allow five business days for us to update our mailing lists.
