Descriptions

1 SEVIS Registration
Initial Student Reporting: Within 30 days of the Program Start Date, register the student record or terminate for no show.
Active Student Reporting for Each Term or Semester: Within 30 days of the Next Session Start Date, register the student record or terminate for Failure to Enroll. [Note: Va. Code Ann. § 23-2.2 requires that the University inform the Virginia Attorney General when 1) an student accepted on a student visa fails to enroll, or 2) a student attending on a student visa withdraws or violates the terms of his/her visa. This report should contain all information from the federal I-20 form, and should be made no later than 30 days after the reportable event. For now, operate under the assumption that this state law has been procedurally superseded by the final SEVIS regulation.] Top

Additional Note:
Final Rule on SEVIS Fees
This rule amends the DHS regulations to provide for the collection of a fee to be paid by students who are seeking status as F-1, F-3, M-1, or M-3 nonimmigrant students or as J-1 nonimmigrant exchange visitors. The rule levies a fee of $100, (with certain J-1 exchange visitors such as camp counselors paying a reduced fee of $35) and certain others will be exempt from the fee altogether. This final rule explains which students will be required to pay the fee.

The rule became effective on September 1, 2004, and applies to potential nonimmigrants who are initially issued a Form I-20 or Form DS-2019 on or after that date. If a Form I-20 or Form DS-2019 for initial status in a new program is issued on or after the effective date, the nonimmigrant traveling on that document will be required to pay the fee. Applicants, schools, and exchange visitor program sponsors should refer to the fee pay table contained in the rule for more detailed information concerning when a fee is required.

2 J-1 Annual Report to U.S. Department of State
The U.S. Department of State requires an annual report of all J-1 exchange visitors (students and others) during July 1 – June 30 of each year. The report is due June 30 each year and includes the number of exchange visitors in each category, challenges and opportunities, and goals for the following year. Top
