Students applying for an F-1 visa to attend a U.S. university must first pay the I-901 Student and Exchange Visitor Information System (SEVIS) fee of $200. This fee should be paid prior to making a visa appointment at the U.S. embassy or consulate. You must take your fee receipt for proof of payment to your visa appointment. For Canadian students who are not required to obtain a visa, you must still pay this fee and provide the receipt for proof of payment, if asked, when you enter the U.S. All students should keep this receipt with their passports and immigration documentation.
Payments can be made online using a credit card, by mail, or by Western Union. We strongly recommend that you pay the fee online using a credit card. If paying by Western Union or mail, please keep in mind that it will take several weeks to get a receipt, so you will need to pay this fee early to avoid any delays with your visa application.
Please visit www.fmjfee.com to pay the fee and complete a Form I-901.
To complete the Form I-901 you will need Norwich University’s school code as well as your SEVIS number:
- The school code is POM214F10035000
- Your SEVIS number is in the top, right-hand corner of your Form I-20 or Form DS-2019 and begins with the letter N
