Will SEVIS benefit students or research scholars in any way?

Data moves faster through an electronic system than through a paper system. Although the international offices at Tufts expect the initial implementation of SEVIS to have its difficult moments, those involved anticipate that in time the system will facilitate working with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). Students can anticipate that in the future DHS forms will be produced faster, applications for benefits such as Practical Training will be approved more quickly, and visas will be granted without the usual long delays.
