Student Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP) Portal

On March 23, 2018 SEVIS instituted a new reporting requirement for students on OPT and STEM-OPT that allows students to directly update, change, and review their contact and employment information.

The portal is accessible from both your mobile device and computer. Students with “Approved” OPT, where the start day has reached, will receive an email with instructions on creating a SEVP Portal account.

This email will come from that contains an unique link which is only valid for 14 days. If you do not see the email, check your spam or junk mail folder.

The SEVP Portal will allow you to:

  • View details about your post-completion or STEM OPT
  • Report changes to your address, telephone and employer information

Any data updates you make in the portal will be sent directly to the Student and Exchange Visitor Information System (SEVIS) for a DSO to review.

In preparation for this change, review the following:

Use of the portal is required for approved OPT and STEM-OPT students. OPT “requested” or “pending” students will receive an email for the SEVP portal once your OPT is approved.

If you have any questions about the SEVP Portal or need assistance, call the SEVP Response Center at 703-603-3400.
