SEVIS Verification

All U.S. educational institutions are required to send international student information to United States Citizenship & Immigration Services (USCIS) through a computer system called SEVIS. International Student & Scholar Services (ISSS), sends information to SEVIS for each F-1 and J-1 student/scholar (and their dependents) sponsored by the University of Maryland.

Each semester ISSS needs to confirm your enrollment in SEVIS. In order to be sure that we are sending accurate information, we ask that you confirm your biographical and academic information:

  1. Each semester by the end of schedule adjustment.
  2. Each time your information changes - this is especially important when you change your contact information. Immigration regulations state that you must inform them of a change to your contact information within 10 days. The easiest way to inform them of this change is by using this website to verify your information.

The information you report will be verified and updated manually. Please allow several business days for your information to be updated in the verification system during busy periods.

You will be logging in using the TESTUDO login screen. You will also need your passport and I-20 or DS-2019 to verify data that will be displayed. When you have successfully logged into your personal information, please review and edit any incorrect data. If your data is correct you will still need to complete the process. Please click on the "Submit" button at the bottom of the page to complete the verification. Please review the changed information for accuracy. If your changes are not correct please use the "Back" button.
