The Summer 2018 SEVP InFocus Webinar aired today, Aug. 16, 2018, from 2 to 3 p.m. EDT. During this webinar, SEVP representatives—including a special guest SEVP field representative presenter—covered key topics of interest to designated school officials (DSOs), including:

  • Proposed changes to SEVP fees.
  • School certification process reminders, including updating a locked Form I-17, “Petition for Approval of School for Attendance by Nonimmigrant Student,” and updates to the Degree Programs field on the Form I-17.
  • Tips and reminders for DSOs to ensure international students maintain their status during the back to school season.
  • Statistics about SEVP’s response to emergencies over the past year and reminders about campus emergency planning.
