An out-of-cycle review letter can be issued to a school at any time to ensure the school is complying with some part of its reporting and recordkeeping requirements, and to ensure the school’s continued eligibility for SEVP certification. Do not worry if your school receives one—it is a normal part of SEVP’s review of schools. But, do respond promptly and thoroughly to the requests.
The out-of-cycle review process may include a student record review, a request for the submission of documentation to verify accreditation, a request for proof of state licensure or a request for any other required evidence that establishes a school’s continued eligibility for SEVP certification. An out-of-cycle review letter may also be issued when SEVP staff visits your school.
