Title: Student and Exchange Visitor Program Recertification
Description: Student and Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP)-certified schools must go through the recertification process every two years to ensure they remain eligible for certification and have complied with all record keeping, retention and reporting requirements, and all other requirements, in accordance with the regulations.
One hundred and eighty days before a school's Certification Expiration Date (CED), designated school officials (DSOs) will receive notice from SEVP through the Student and Exchange Visitor Information System (SEVIS) that the school is eligible to apply for recertification.
