List of SEVP Approved Schools


Jun 11, 2010

The United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement recently updated their list of Student and Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP) approved schools. See attached. SEVP_Approved_Schools.pdf

The schools listed have all been certified to participate in a program that allows foreign students interested in obtaining an education in the United States to complete a visa petition, pay the required fee, and attend a U.S. College or University. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) utilizes a web based system called the Student Exchange Visitor System (SEVIS) which maintains information on the foreign students accepted into the program.

In order to obtain a student visa, the student must first obtain Form I-20 from the U.S. College or University from which he/she intends to enroll, pay the required visa fee (Form I-901) and contact a local U.S. Consulate/Embassy to schedule an interview. At the interview, the student must have Form I-20, proof of payment of Form I-901, financial support documentation, and a completed visa application. The SEVP procedures differ among U.S. Consulates/Embassies and each embassy needs to be contacted for visa information.
