SEVP Portal for Certain F-1 and M-1 Students

On March 23, 2018, the Student and Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP) launched the SEVP Portal. The new portal allows F-1 students on OPT and M-1 students participating in vocational training to update their addresses, phone numbers, and employer information. F-1 students on STEM OPT extensions cannot add or change employer information through the portal, however, as this requires the filing of a form I-983 training plan.


The SEVP portal provides a convenient method for international students to directly update their information. Hopefully, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) will continue to expand the use of online technologies that will make the U.S. immigration system more efficient, reliable, and user friendly.
