In an effort to better fund the Student and Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP), DHS is raising the fees associated with the program. Effective June 24, 2019, the fee for each F or M nonimmigrant student applicant filing Form I-901 will be $350 (an increase of $150); for full program J-1s filing Form I-901, $220 ($40 more). The existing $35 fee for each J-1 exchange visitor seeking admission as an au pair, camp counselor, or summer work/travel program participant will remain the same. Large increases have shifted to the schools, with initial school certification increasing to $3,000 (up $1,300) and recertification, $1,250 (previously free). DHS expects to raise more than $75 million annually, of which over $62 million will be borne by F and M nonimmigrants.
