The Student and Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP) certification allows institutions to issue Forms I-20, Certificate of Eligibility for Nonimmigrant Student Status, to prospective international students after admitting them for a course of study. Prospective international students then use Form I-20 to apply for a visa to enter the United States. https://www.ice.gov/sevis
