“Intent to Terminate Notices” to Students Who Fail to Comply with Form I-515A

Beginning on April 1, 2016, the Student and Exchange Visitor Program will send “Intent to Terminate” notices to students and exchange visitors and their dependents who have failed to comply with the Form I-515A directive by the specified deadline. Recipients of the “Intent to Terminate” notices will have 14 days, as of the date the letter is sent, to respond to the Form I-515A. Failure to comply will result in the termination of their SEVIS record.

If you receive a Form I-515A, you must immediately contact your designated school official (DSO) to address the Form I-515A within the 30 days given to you. If you do not address the matter, you will not be able to remain in the United States.
