DHS distributed a list of changes to SEVIS that were implemented with SEVIS Release 4.8, which went into production in January 2004. The system changes include removing the record creation reasons relating to creating “continuing” student or exchange visitor (i.e., non-SEVIS to SEVIS) records, navigational improvements, usability improvement of alerts and lists, data regarding a student’s event history, allowing batch processing of records that have been transferred, ability to update exchange visitor data or cancel an exchange visitor record in initial status, and other changes.
