SEVP certified schools are required to maintain accuracy and report on student records and school statistics within SEVIS as a part of the SEVP Certification. If your school is certified ask yourself, is your school keeping up with the SEVIS reporting cycle and all the required updates? Would you know if your school is up to date and SEVIS compliant?

SEVP has recently asserted that the Form I-17 is essentially a contractual agreement between the School and United States Department of Homeland Security. This contract obligates the school to perform as prescribed when enrolling non-immigrant international students. The reporting tasks associated with maintaining status for both students and schools must adhere to strict time lines as well as accuracy and evidence of information guidelines. Al responding to the many SEVIS communications is an expectation. Being prepared in advance with the requested documentation is critical.

This Webinar will help your school outline an interface with SEVIS schedule and plan so reporting is accurate, timely and in full compliance with SEVIS/SEVP regulations. We will review information and documentation sources needed so your staff may set the time needed for reporting on both the student and school records. If your PDSO/DSO team does not have a reporting schedule in place, this Webinar will give you the tools to create one. If your team does have a reporting schedule in place, this Webinar is an excellent source for review in making certain the schedule is up-to date and all inclusive.
