Use the SEVIS ID Maintenance page to store the SEVIS ID provided by the DHS for students or exchange visitors and their dependents. The SEVIS ID is an 11-character unique identifier that SEVIS uses for students, exchange visitors, and their dependents related to a specific school code or program number. The system displays only the SEVIS IDs of the school codes or program numbers for which you have security clearance.


Running the Import process for new students, exchange visitors, and dependents automatically populates the ID field. You may need to manually enter this value if you initially created the student or exchange visitor, or the dependent using the SEVIS RTI.


In this topic, you enter SEVIS ID information for a student who is attending your institution.
