Mapping SEVIS by the Numbers

Mapping SEVIS by the Numbers

The Student and Exchange Visitor Information System (SEVIS) is the web-based tool that the Department of Homeland Security uses to maintain information on F and M students in the United States. This data includes the students' country of citizenship, what U.S. school they attend, what they study and more.

Mapping SEVIS by the Numbers provides an interactive map that illustrates trends and information on international students studying in the United States using data from the quarterly SEVIS by the Numbers reports. Information can be viewed at the continent, region and country level. The map also includes information on the gender and education level breakdown for students from each geographical area.
