Students: Read These Tips for Paying the I-901 Fee
Students, once you are accepted to a Student Exchange and Visitor Program-certified school (SEVP) and have obtained your Form, “I-20 Certificate of Eligibility for Nonimmigrant Student Status,” you will be required to pay an I-901 fee. You can find the I-901 form on the Resources for Students page.
There are several ways that prospective F or M students can pay the I-901 fee:
- If you are a prospective F or M student with a country of citizenship or country of birth of Cameroon, Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria or Gambia, you may only pay this fee by money order, Western Union Quick Pay, or certified check drawn from a U.S. bank. Visit ICE.gov/SEVP for detailed instructions on how to pay through Western Union Quick Pay.
- If you are a prospective F or M student from elsewhere, you also have the option to make a credit card payment or have a third party make a credit card payment on your behalf on FMJfee.com.
Don’t forget: Once you make your payment, you’ll need to bring your receipt to your Department of State visa appointment.
