I. Introduction

SEVP and SEVIS
The Student and Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP) manages the Student and Exchange Visitor Information System (SEVIS). SEVP is a program under the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency within Department of Homeland Security (DHS). SEVIS came online in 2003 to track and monitor the status and activities of nonimmigrant students and exchange visitors (EVs) who enter the United States. This web-based system collects real-time information on nonimmigrant students, EVs, approved schools, and program sponsors. This information is available to a variety of stakeholders. SEVIS also retains information on Exchange Visitor Program sponsors and visitors that are approved by the Department of State (DoS). The DoS web site is http://exchanges.state.gov/education/jexchanges/about.htm This quarterly review is based on information retrieved on October 1, 2007. As SEVIS is a real-time data base, exact numbers within this review were accurate as of the date retrieved. The below list contains the various organizations that request data and information stored in SEVIS. SEVP continues to see the number of requests increase as SEVP’s abilities and SEVIS’ capabilities expand.
