  10. The page appears with either the School Code field for F and M visas or the Program Number field for J visas displayed, depending on whether the system finds I-20 form data (F or M visa) or DS-2019 form data (J visa) containing the dependent's ID.


    For F and M visas, the system displays the SEVIS school code from the primary document holder's I-20 form.


    For J visas, the system displays the program number of the primary document holder's DS-2019 form.

    Step 10
  11. The system displays the ID of the dependent's primary document holder, either Spouse of or Child of.


    The field label changes to reflect the dependent's relationship to the primary document holder. For example, suppose John O'Malley, the dependent on whom you search, is the son of the primary document holder. The field label would be Child of.

    Step 11
  12. Click the View Form link to access the form (I-20 or DS-2019) where the system found the dependent’s ID. The form appears on a new page in update/display mode.
