On December 21, 2012, Immigration and Custom Enforcement's (ICE) Student and Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP) submitted a proposed regulation to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) which would modify the limitations on the number of Designated School Officials (DSO) that colleges and universities may have. The proposed regulation would also permit F-2 and M-2 spouses and children accompanying academic and vocational nonimmigrant students in F-1 or M-1 status to enroll in study at an SEVP-certified school so long as any study remains less than a full course of study without having to change status to F-1 or M-1 status. The exact language of the proposed regulation has not yet been released to the public. Only an abstract of the proposed regulation is available on the OMB's website. After OMB reviews and approves the regulation, the proposed regulation will then be published in the Federal Register for comment. After the comment period, SEVP would then have to issue a final regulation before any modifications to the F-1 and M-1 regulations would become effective.
