After an international student is issued an I-20 from the Jefferson College, the student is required to pay a $200.00 SEVIS I-901 fee. The fee will need to be paid by the student, not by Jefferson College.

This fee can be paid online with a credit card. There are two important websites students can visit to find out more about this fee and how to pay it online. To access information about the SEVIS fee, please log onto the SEVIS website. To pay the fee online, please log onto

When the fee is paid, a receipt will be generated and that receipt is used as evidence of the fee payment when making the visa application at a US consulate, entering the US, or making an application to the US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).

The fee must be paid before a student visa can be issued by the US Consulate Office.
