New Process: Reporting School Procedural Adaptations to SEVP
As noted in SEVP’s March 2020 guidance, schools should provide notice of any procedural adaptations made in response to the Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) to SEVP within 10 business days of the date of the decision to initiate the change. If an SEVP-certified school has previously submitted a procedural change plan detailing its alternative procedures, it does not need to resubmit the plan for the fall 2020 session, unless the school is making substantive changes. Therefore, if your school’s COVID-19 operational plan has been updated for the fall 2020 term, then your school should submit its updated operational plans to the following email: SEVPDocuments@ice.dhs.gov.
