Maintaining Your SEVIS Record

The Student and Exchange Visitor Information System (SEVIS) is the internet-based system that maintains accurate and current information on non-immigrant students (F and M visa), exchange visitors (J visa), and their dependents (F-2, M-2, and J-2).

Federal laws and regulations require nonimmigrant students to update their Designated School Official (DSO) in a timely manner with changes to information pertinent to the maintenance of the student’s SEVIS record, noting updates to their:

  • Arrival to and departure from High Point University
  • Name, phone number, mailing address, or physical address
  • Change of Funding
  • Discipline record, noting disciplinary action taken by the school as a result of a conviction of a crime
  • Academic program or status
  • Employment

The Office of Global Education requires students to submit in writing these updates within ten (10) business days.

Keep every I-20 for your permanent record, even after you graduate. Do not discard the old ones, even from previous schools.
