Conferences and Outreach

The Student and Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP) is dedicated to keeping our stakeholders informed about important updates and information related to the program.

We welcome the opportunity to participate in stakeholder conferences and related events. These events provide SEVP with additional opportunities to engage with our stakeholders, provide program updates and address stakeholder questions. If you are interested in SEVP participating in your upcoming conference or event, email your request to and our team will follow-up shortly.

Please note: To attend events in-person, SEVP must receive requests at least 10 weeks prior to the event. To attend virtually (i.e., by webinar or teleconference), SEVP must receive requests at least four weeks before the event.

Seasonal Conference Presentations

For stakeholders unable to attend a conference or event in person, SEVP summarizes key program news into a recorded presentation and executive summary posted to Study in the States at the beginning of the spring/summer and fall/winter conference seasons.

To view this season's presentation, please visit the Spring/Summer 2015 Conference Presentation page on Study in the States.
