Common Filing Tasks

Change an Address


There are two ways of filing an application to change an address; electronically or manually. The rules require certain services to file electronically (See Section 1.913(b) of the Commission’s Rules).
Licensees are responsible for maintaining the accuracy of their mailing address and contact information. Revocation of your station license may result when correspondence from the FCC is returned as undeliverable because you failed to provide the correct mailing address.
Note: The address and contact information you have entered in CORES registration will not be automatically associated with your licenses. To change the address or other contact information on your license, you must update your information in ULS or submit Form 601 manually.
 

Using the Universal Licensing System

To change an address associated with a license, access the Universal Licensing System (ULS), select Online Filing, and follow the instructions below.
  1. Log in to the “License Manager” page with your FCC Registration Number (FRN) and password. If you do not have an FRN, you must obtain one first by going to the FCC Registration site
  2. If you have saved applications, the system will open to a page titled “My Applications”. From this page choose the My Licenses link in the side navigation menu at the left side of the screen.
  3. On the “My Licenses” page, select the Update Licenses link from the navigation menu at the left side of the screen. Note: For additional help with this process, click on the Common Questions links that appear on most pages of ULS License Manager, or click the Help link at the top right of each page. Alternatively you may select an individual call sign from the list of your licenses and, once the “license at a glance” page has loaded for that call sign, select update license from the “Work on this License” menu at the right side of the screen.
  4. On the Select Updates page, select the license(s) you want to update, and click on the Add button to add them to the Licenses to Update list, click Continue when ready. Note that you can filter the licenses shown in the licenses box by selecting a specific radio service in the filter by radio service drop down box.
  5. On the “Review Licenses & Select Updates” page, you may indicate whether you wish to update the licensee information or contact information by selecting the box(es) next to the information you wish to update. Click Continue when ready.
  6. Answer the question on the “Applicant Questions” page and click Continue when ready.
  7. If you indicated that you wanted to update licensee information you will next be presented with the “Licensee Information” page where you can review and update the licensee information. Make any corrections that are necessary and click Continue when ready.
  8. If you indicated that you wanted to update contact information you will next be presented with the “Contact Information” page where you can review and update the contact information. Make any corrections that are necessary and click Continue when ready.
  9. On the “Summary” page review the information you have entered. If you wish to make additional changes, click the Edit button next to the section of your application you wish to edit. You will be able to return to that page of the application, make the desired change and select the Return to Summary button. When ready to submit your update to the Commission, choose the Continue to Certify button.
  10. After reading the certification, enter your first and last name and title if appropriate in the boxes at the bottom of the page. You MUST sign the application. When finished choose the Submit Application button.
