Students: SEVP Portal Upgrades to Release 1.6
As a result of Release 1.6, you will now receive emails from the portal reminding you of important deadlines and changes to your Student and Exchange Visitor Information System (SEVIS) record. When your email address changes in SEVIS, the portal will send a confirmation email to your old email address and new email address.
If you are a science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) optional practical training (OPT) student, the portal will also send an email notification:
- 30 days before your six-month validation reports are due.
- 30 days before your annual self-evaluations are due.
As a reminder, STEM OPT students can find their reporting and self-evaluation deadlines on the Profile page of the SEVP Portal as a result of SEVP Portal Release 1.5. Visit the SEVP Portal Help section on Study in the States for additional resources.
