Terminate a Dependent
The status of a dependent’s record usually matches the status of the student’s record; therefore, any associated dependent records automatically terminate when the student record is terminated.
Sometimes it is necessary to terminate a dependent’s record separately from the student’s record. Reasons for manual dependent termination can include:
- Child dependent turning 21 years old
- Student divorce
- Unauthorized dependent employment
For a description on terminating a dependent records separately, see the SEVIS Help Hub article Terminate a Student/Dependent.
