On May 12, 2009, SEVP sent an e-mail to SEVIS users announcing that in preparation for SEVIS II, "SEVP is examining the data within the current SEVIS to ensure its accuracy and validity prior to its migration to SEVIS II."

As part of this project, you may receive an email about your SEVIS data, including data about specific records. The SEVP notice clarifies that "You are NOT required to review or correct this data. However, taking action will help prepare your school’s data for a more seamless transition to SEVIS II."
