    • Valid Address – Entered address is a valid per USPS.
    • Invalid Address – Entered address in not valid per USPS.

This status only applies to Student Residence Address but may display as an Address Validation status Same as Student checkbox is selected when the parent/guardian, contact, or other family member address.
    • Unverified Address – This status displays when MiSiS was not able to make a connection with the address standardization tool. Schools do not need to take any action. MiSiS will automatically validate the address when the address standardization tool is available.

    Until June 25, all previously entered addresses in MiSiS will have an Unverified Address status. On June 25, MiSiS will automatically standardize all previously entered addresses in MiSiS. Schools do not need to take any action.
