After the designated school official (DSO) submits a student’s Form I-20, and then the student wishes to add a dependent later, the DSO uses the Add Dependent page to enter the dependent into the student record. The student must be in Initial or Active status.
The Add Dependent page is also used to collect information regarding the dependent spouse or children of a student.
To add a dependent to a student’s SEVIS record:
- Go to the Student Information page.
