In a meeting with NAFSA staff, Student and Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP) officials provided this overview of the recently established SEVP Analysis and Operations Center (SAOC). With the creation of SAOC, SEVP plans to better analyze SEVIS data and utilize established risk factors in its enforcement and compliance efforts. SAOC will become responsible for “out of cycle reviews” (those not associated with program certification or recertification) described in the regulations at 8 CFR 241.3(h)(3) and site visits. The “out of cycle review” process, which may be triggered by certain I-17 updates, may require only communication with SEVP or may result in a site visit, and SAOC may also conduct random site visits to verify compliance. We will post additional information about SAOC as it is obtained.
