9.2 Viewing SEVIS Alerts

Purpose: Use this document as a reference for running the SEVIS Alerts process in ctcLink.

Audience: College staff responsible for maintaining student SEVIS information.

By using the SEVIS school code and batch ID for F and M visas, you are also able to review errors, enter additional data, and indicate if the event should be submitted to SEVIS. You can also indicate if a new I-20 form is needed for the individual. The SEVIS school code and batch ID information are keyed to the data on the Select Alerts to Report - F/M component. The batch ID is a unique number generated by the alerts process.
