SEVIS Activation & Orientation
Each semester, F-1 and J-1 Students beginning a new program at Stevens must complete SEVIS Activation. This process is different from the orientations or check-ins held by Stevens offices including Graduate Admissions, Graduate Student Life, Undergraduate Admissions, or Student Affairs, and is an important part of beginning your international student journey at Stevens Institute of Technology.
SEVIS Activation can be completed after your arrival to Stevens. Students must be within the United States in order to submit the form.
The SEVIS Activation Form will be found in the student's ISSS Student Portal, accessible to newly admitted students 30 days prior to the start date listed on their Form I-20.
