Outage Begins Outage Scheduled to End
Friday, July 21, 2017 at 8:00 PM (ET) Friday, July 21, 2017 at 11:59 PM (ET)

Currently, SEVP expects the outage to last four hours (approximately).

Schools and sponsors that use third-party software to push data to SEVIS must plan their batch uploads carefully.

The update to the system does not involve a change to the batch schema. Schools that cannot deploy their batch vendor’s updates to their batch software by the release date will still be able to submit registration events via batch.
