The Student and Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP) has issued a new message advising designated school officials (DSOs) that it will soon begin issuing notices to F-1 students participating in optional practical training (OPT) if the student does not mention information on the employer in the Student and Exchange Visitor Information System (SEVIS). Per the message, if a student has been on OPT for at least 90 days and has not reported employer information, SEVP will mail a notice to the student, and provide the student the opportunity to update the student’s SEVIS record with this information. Failure to timely update the record will result in the student’s SEVIS record being terminated.
