However any student who got their form prior to 26th June 2015 and has not worked with their designated school officer to obtain a redesigned form must do so as soon as possible.

  • Visit the US
  • Pay I-901 SEVIS fee
  • Apply to get job authorization from USCIS
  • Apply for an advantage, like driving license or social security number
