Find Answers to Questions on the Form I–17 Accreditations and Recognitions Conversion

July 21, 2014
Get answers to the Form I-17.

In February 2014, the Student and Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP) held a webinar to discuss updates to the Student and Exchange Visitor Information System (SEVIS). The webinar focused on the SEVIS Accreditation and Recognition conversion project. This project enables school officials to provide more complete accreditation and recognition data so SEVP can better verify the continued eligibility of SEVP-certified schools. If you have any questions about this project, SEVP now offers a document with answers to frequently asked questions. Visit the Study in the States Stakeholder Webinars page and select the “Pending Conversion of School Accreditations and Recognitions for Form I–17” webinar in the drop down menu. From there, select the Frequently Asked Questions option to download the PDF.
