Current Students: What to do if your school is no longer SEVP certified


December 1, 2011

If you attend an SEVP certified school that has been automatically withdrawn from SEVIS certification as a result of SEVP’s ongoing recertification process please:

  • Do not panic!
  • Contact your designated school official about your options.
  • Finish the current semester/term at your current school.
  • If your designated school official lets you know that your school is being reinstated to enroll nonimmigrant students, you may continue to be enrolled at your school.
  • If the school remains withdrawn from certification, you will be notified by letter from SEVP.   You may do one of the following within 30 days of the schools withdrawal:
    1. Depart the United States;
    2. Transfer to another SEVP certified school; or,
    3. Change to another nonimmigrant status.

    If you have questions you can call the SEVP Response Center at (703) 603-3400 between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. ET.
