I-901 SEVIS Fee

SEVIS stands for the Student and Exchange Visitor Information System. SEVIS is the system the U.S. government utilizes to collect and maintain information on nonimmigrant students, exchange visitors, and their dependents.

When you are issued an I-20 (F-1 Students) or DS-2019 (J-1 Students), you are assigned an individualized SEVIS number. You may find this number on your document on the first page. It begins with an “N.”

All admitted international students seeking to study in the United States must pay a required SEVIS fee prior to applying for a U.S. visa or entering the U.S.
