The Subj/Field Code field is available or unavailable based on the student exchange visitor's academic plan information. For a student category exchange visitor, this information comes from the student records academic plan with the minimum sequence number where the plan type is equal to the plan types defined for primary major on the SEVIS Setup page.
If no data exists on the student records academic plan, the information comes from student admissions academic plan. The CIP code is the code related to the Academic Plan as assigned on the Academic Plan Taxonomy table.
If the exchange visitor is a non-student program category (Professor or Research Scholar, for example), the field is available and you must select the appropriate subject/field code.
This field is required.
