My SEVIS Record Update (F-1 Only)
For F-1 students, the Department of Homeland Security stipulates that “You must take a full course of study each term; if you cannot study full-time, contact your DSO immediately.” Therefore, you must enroll every term as a full-time student (18+ hours of instruction per week). If you are an F-1 student and wish to be waived from the enrollment requirement, you must complete this form for approval from your DSO.
Please complete this form BEFORE the term you wish to avoid from the enrollment requirement. Otherwise, you will be terminated in SEVIS for “Failure to Enroll.” For assistance in completing this form, please contact the Student Support Service department by email: [email protected].
