Texas A&M University-Kingsville

Course Schedule Change of Address/Name

Official notification of change of address is necessary for accurate mailing of important correspondence from the university, such as grades, statements, financial aid awards and notices about special events. It is the student's responsibility to keep the Office of the Registrar informed of any changes. Updates to addresses will be done immediately upon receipt.

Note: There are three different types of addresses that are used for mailings at various times during the year. If you move during the semester, please stop by the Office of the Registrar in College Hall to update your address information. You also may fax a change of address request to 361-593-2195.

The three types of addresses and a brief definition of each are listed below:

Permanent address - Financial aid award letters and financial aid missing information letters are sent to this address prior to the semester beginning. (After the semester begins, financial aid information is sent to the local address if the student has one listed; if not, the information will continue to be sent to the permanent address).

Billing address - Refund checks and tuition bills are sent to this address. (If the student has not listed a billing address, this information will be sent to the permanent address).

Local address - Financial aid award letters and financial aid missing information letters are sent to this address.
