The U.S. Student and Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP) just deployed 14 new field representatives to locations across the country. These representatives will serve as liaisons between U.S. schools that enroll international students and SEVP. The program certifies schools to enroll international students and protects national security by overseeing those students for compliance with U.S. laws.

These field representatives are key resources for schools on the SEVP certification and recertification processes, and educate schools on the program’s rules and regulations and federal laws governing international students studying in the U.S. Additionally, they protect national security by improving the data integrity of the Student and Exchange Visitor Information System (SEVIS).
