The Student and Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP) and the Department of State are working to create one person, one record in the Student and Exchange Visitor Information System (SEVIS), beginning with school and sponsor officials.
The first phase of the process will take place July 8 through Aug. 31, 2019. This phase focuses on merging SEVIS accounts for active school and sponsor officials who use more than one SEVIS username to carry out their duties in the SEVIS production environment.
Merging your accounts will allow you to:
To be eligible, make sure your first and last names in SEVIS are the same across all accounts and send a request to SEVP to have your SEVIS accounts merged. It is not mandatory to merge your accounts, but SEVP strongly encourages taking action. If you currently use only one SEVIS username, no action is required.
For detailed instructions on how to request the merging of your SEVIS accounts, please refer to the SEVIS Job Aid: Merging User Accounts on Study in the States.
You may also contact the SEVP Response Center at 703-603-3400 or 800 892 4829, Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. ET, except federal holidays.
