2: SEVIS Fee & Student Visa

Step 2: Pay the SEVIS fee and schedule your student visa interview.

To pay the SEVIS fee, please visit the U.S. Immigration & Customs Enforcement website and follow the instructions provided.

Once the fee is paid, visit the website of the United States Embassy in your country in order to begin the steps necessary to obtain a F1 student visa.  If you are not sure if you require a student visa, or which type of visa applies to you, contact the admissions office.

If you are currently an international student on a F1 visa in the United States, complete the Transfer Visa Form and take it to your current student advisor.  He or She will transfer your SEVIS record to Kettering University, we will then print a new I-20 form and mail it to you.  If you plan to leave the country, we encourage you to apply and obtain a new F1 visa prior to returning to the United States.  Otherwise, keep your new I-20 form with you and bring it to the Office of International Programs when you arrive at Kettering for International Student Orientation.
