SEVP has launched a new project as part of the SEVIS 6.16 release:
Accreditations and Recognitions Conversion Project
All SEVP-certified schools are required to participate in a one-time conversion of the school accreditation/recognition information on their Form I-17. SEVP is changing the format of Fields 10 and 11 on the electronic I-17 to capture more accurate information, including any applicable expiration dates. All schools must convert their accreditation information to the new format by July 19, 2014 or their accreditations will be listed as “none” in the new fields. See Release Resources below for tools to assist with the conversion.
Conversion period begins: April 19, 2014
Conversion deadline: July 19, 2014
