2. Click the dependent’s SEVIS ID in the Dependents section. The Student Information page with a Dependent Information section opens.
3. Click Update under the Actions section on top, left side. The Update Dependent page opens.
4. Update dependent information, as necessary. See SEVIS Help Hub article Add a Dependent to the Student Record for description of fields.
5. Click one of the following:

- Update Dependent: Updates the record and returns to the Dependents page. A message indicates the successful update to the dependent’s record.
Do not forget to print the dependent’s updated Form I-20.
