You must have at least one of these local college managed security roles:


If you need assistance with the above security roles, please contact your local college supervisor or IT Admin to request role access.

You will need to set these SACR Security permissions:


  • Warning! Colleges should NOT update the SEVIS Master Component directly. The SEVIS Master Component will update automatically when the correct data elements exist on the student’s record. Do not manually update the data on any of the SEVIS Master Component pages unless you have made changes directly in SEVIS RTI that cannot be processed using the Send to Master feature on the Select Alerts to Report  F/M page. The data on the SEVIS Master Component pages should always match the data in SEVIS RTI.
  • You can search for students on the SEVIS Master Component after you have entered an I-20 for them and completed the SEVIS alerts process to send to Master or SEVIS. Related QRGs:
