Frequently Asked Questions
All student applicants must have a SEVIS Student and Exchange Visitor Information Service generated I-20 issued by an educational institution approved by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), which they submit when they are applying for their student visa. SEVP stands for the Student and Exchange Visitor Program and differs from the SEVIS. The consular officer will need to verify your I-20 record electronically through the SEVIS system in order to process your student visa application. Unless otherwise exempt, participants whose SEVIS I-20 was issued on or after September 1, 2004, must pay a SEVIS I-901 Fee to the DHS for each individual program. The fee may be paid either through a special website, via Western Union or by mail. Click here for information on the SEVIS-901 fee.
For further clarification on SEVIS, visit the Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement website.
