SEVIS Violations

We are here to help you. However, it is your responsibility to remain compliant with immigration and university regulations. We provide information and services to help ensure that you are aware of these requirements and are able to stay in legal status. Maintaining contact with our office and reading your IU email regularly throughout your time here will help ensure you stay in status.

In most cases, the termination of your SEVIS record means that you must make plans to immediately depart from the United States. In other words, there may not be a grace period after a termination.

If we have to terminate your SEVIS record, you have two options: travel outside the United States with a new I-20 or submit a reinstatement application to regain your status. Our expert staff can help you determine what the best option is for you.

If you have an F-2 spouse or children, they would also have their SEVIS records terminated at the same time.
