Request/Authorization Details

Last updated 29-May-2020

Overview

SEVIS allows you to view current request and authorization details for students. The student’s past requests and authorizations do not display. Only pending requests or approved requests with future end dates display on the Current Request/Authorization Details page. If the text indicates there are no requests for an authorization type (for example, “No Current Transfer Request”), it does not mean that the student has never had that type of authorization; it means that the student does not have any current authorizations.
