Immigration Custom Enforcement’s (ICE) Student Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP) recently provided an update about the current recertification process for institutions authorized to admit F-1 and M-1 students. Of the approximately 10,000 institutions approved to admit F-1 and M-1 students, approximately 3,400 have filed a complete recertification package. Of those 3,400 institutions, approximately 2,218 have been recertified. The current recertification adjudication process takes approximately 150 days, if a Request for Information (RFI) is not issued. Because SEVP has recently hired additional adjudicators, it is assumed that this processing time will decrease the future. SEVP stated that it plans to send approximately 450 recertification notices a month and that the goal of SEVP is to have all schools receive their first recertification notice by July 2013. No institution has yet been denied recertification. However, SEVP began the recertification process by recertifying accredited schools or institutions. However, the denial rate may increase as SEVP begins the recertification process for non-accredited institutions.
