About the I-901 Sevis Fee

About the I-901 Sevis Fee

Most new students must pay the SEVIS fee before applying for an entry visa or entering the United States.  This fee is assessed by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and is not administered by UW-Superior.  For more information about how to pay the fee, visit www.ice.gov/sevis/i901/.

Note that, although Canadian citizens are exempt from the student visa requirement, Canadian students must present proof of payment of the SEVIS I-901 fee when seeking entry at a U.S. port of entry for "initial" attendance at a U.S. school.
