  • Go to the SEVIS I-901 Fee processing website:
  • You will need information from your I-20
    • The SEVIS number found on the top of the I-20
    • The school code for ELOP which is NOL214F00094001
    • Your name as it appears on your I-20. It should match the name on your passport.

Apply for your F-1 visa early. Due to new security procedures, the waiting period can be lengthy.
