1. SEVP adjudicators review updates in the order in which SEVP receives them.
2. The evidence a school needs to provide to SEVP depends on accreditation status and the type of programs offered by the school. If a school fails to submit evidence at the same time it submits the update in SEVIS, SEVP may cancel the request and ask that the school resubmit the request with the required evidence.
3. SEVP may ask your school to provide additional evidence for adjudication through an RFE. A specific due date is included in all RFEs. School officials should note this date to ensure all evidence is provided by the due date. SEVP may deny any petition updates for institutions who fail to provide supporting documentation in a timely manner. Failure to provide evidence that establishes the school still operates under the required regulatory bona fides may result in a withdrawal of the school’s certification.
4. SEVP uses SEVIS for all communications, such as, sending RFEs, notices, or adjudication decisions to the school; therefore, all email addresses in SEVIS must be current.
