    MiSiS Announcements:

    Address Standardization Now in MiSiS

    Beginning today, addresses entered on the Enrollment, Parent/Guardian, Emergency Contact, and Other Family Member screens in MiSiS will be standardized automatically to comply with United States Postal Services (USPS) requirements. After the address is submitted by the user, the screen will display an Address Validation status. There are five possible statuses:

    • Valid Address – Entered address is a valid per USPS.
    • Invalid Address – Entered address in not valid per USPS.
    • School Verified Address – Entered address is not valid per USPS but the school has verified the address based on school attendance boundaries or official documentation (Driver’s License, utility bill, etc.).
    • MiSiS Verified Address – Entered address is not valid per USPS but MiSiS has verified the address based on information in MiSiS. 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.

    Clearing the cache (browser history) should resolve most issues with the new address fields in MiSiS. Users can review the directions below for the different internet browsers.

    • Safari – Go to History, then select Clear History and Website Data.
    • Chrome – Go to chrome://history/, then click on the Clear browsing data button.
