ACTION REQUIRED! SEVP Portal – Register Your SEVP Account Immediately!


Last week, the Student and Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP) sent instructions to students on OPT and STEM OPT on how to register for their new SEVP Portal account. View more information about the SEVP Portal on the OIE website.

The registration link is only good for a short period of time! Register your account by this Friday, April 6, 2018, to ensure you are not locked out of the SEVP portal. Links can only be used once and are specific to each student.

The portal is ONLY accessible to students who are in active period of OPT or STEM OPT. If you did not see an email from, please check ALL of your email accounts (including spam/junk folders). If you have questions about whether you should have received an email, please review the FAQ page on the OIE website. If you did not receive the email and believe you should have, contact for next steps.

If you have already registered your account, thank you.
