The Student and Exchange Visitor Information System (SEVIS) is a web-based system for tracking international students and exchange visitors in the United States. Highline College is required to report student information and academic progress to the SEVIS system.
The following students do not have to pay the SEVIS fee:
The SEVIS fee needs to be paid before you go for your interview at the U.S. Embassy or consulate. There are two ways to pay the fee: online at www.FMJfee.com, or by mail. Electronic payments must be made at least 3 business days before the scheduled interview with the consular officer. Mailed payments must arrive at the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) address shown on the Form I-901 at least 3 business days before the scheduled interview.
You should bring the payment receipt to the interview. Individuals who file electronically will be able to print an electronic receipt immediately at the time of payment. For those students who choose to pay by mail, DHS will issue an official paper receipt called an I-797.
NOTE: At the moment, we do not recommend that students pay by mail because the process could take a long time.
