Read New Updates to the Trends and Improvements Section

March 21, 2023

Study in the States recently updated the Trends and Improvements section by adding a new feedback topic on completion time for I-901 Student and Exchange Visitor Information System (SEVIS) Fee payments. Regulation requires all prospective F and M students to pay the I-901 SEVIS Fee before the U.S. Department of State issues a student visa. 

The new I-901 SEVIS Fee topic highlights how, through a series of initiatives enacted since 2015, the completion time for payment of the fee has dropped to five minutes on average. These initiatives include updates to the payment system, improvements to the mobile experience and more.

The Trends and Improvements section is the central repository for tracking and monitoring the government’s progress on feedback received from the academic and international student communities. Visit the section to learn more about specific government responses to stakeholder concerns.
