What should students or research scholars do to prepare for SEVIS?

  • Read any email updates from the various International Offices at Tufts. Changes in immigration or visa procedures sometimes happen quickly. Information is posted as soon as we have reliable facts. Also, continue to monitor this page as well as the International Center website at http://ase.tufts.edu/icenter, the Boston International Affairs Office website at Office of International Affairs, and the Fletcher School website at http://fletcher.tufts.edu/intlstudents.

  • Understand the immigration regulations and learn how to maintain lawful status in the U.S., and refer any questions or problems immediately to an International Student Advisor in your respective international office on the Medford or Boston campus.

  • Be proactive. Students should plan their course schedules carefully so that they maintain full- time enrollment. Make travel arrangements early, and anticipate delays at consulates and border crossings. Keep all documents up-to-dateŚchanges in degree level, extensions, and travel validations must be done in a timely manner and on SEVIS documents. Allow time for processing new forms.

  • Feel free to contact the international office for your school for assistance.
