SEVIS Grace Period Ends February 15, 2003

INS has decided to grant a grace period for schools and exchange visitor programs to enter information and issue forms through the Student and Exchange Visitor Information System (SEVIS).  INS announced that on January 1, 2003, it completed the deployment of SEVIS and that over 3,000 schools have been admitted to use the system.  INS states, "we will continue to accept forms issued under the previous paper system to accommodate schools that may have initial difficulty accessing or using SEVIS."  However, INS recommends that schools having difficulties should report them promptly to the SEVIS Help Desk.  The grace period will end on February 15, 2003, after which INS will only accept forms issued through SEVIS.
