K-12 F-1 SEVIS Nuts and Bolts is a two level workshop that covers the fundamentals of F-1 Student Status and SEVIS needed by Designated School Officials at elementary and secondary schools. You will gain a clear understanding of best practices to implement at your school.
Level II is a must for SEVIS Designated School Officials at K-12 schools who are responsible for SEVIS reporting and advising F-1 Students throughout their enrollment at their schools. We will discuss the government’s requirements for enrolling and transferring your F-1 international students and your school’s compliance responsibilities. We will also review what students must do to maintain F-1 Student Status, as well as travel abroad while attending your school.
