Withdrawing SEVIS Record

When applying for a SEVIS Withdrawal, remember the following:
  • Once a student has officially withdrawn he/she is not eligible for a grace-period and should leave the U.S. as quickly as possible.
  • Students taking a temporary leave of absence from Northwestern should withdraw.
  • The Withdrawal form requires a signature from the students' academic advisor.

To complete a SEVIS Withdrawl, students must access the SEVIS Withdrawl Form and submit it to the IO.

It is highly recommended that students see an IO advisor for guidance and clarification regarding the withdrawal process.
