SEVIS Module Virtual Boot Camp

  • Are you in a ISSS office that is implementing TDS for the first time?
  • Do you have employees who need to quickly get up to speed?
  • Do you have new staff who need a solid understanding of the SEVIS Module?

If you said yes to any of the questions above, this program is ideal for you!

The Terra Dotta SEVIS Module Virtual Boot Camp is a 2-day online workshop designed to rapidly build your SEVIS module skills as an ISSS Terra Dotta administrator.

As a participant, you will receive access to your own Terra Dotta practice site for 30 days.  Participants will work together to move an incoming cohort of F/J students from Initial I-20/DS-2019 creation through SEVIS registration/validation in the practice site.

Experienced instructors will guide you through exercises that teach you how to master the SEVIS Module and take full advantage of all its features.

You will leave with a certificate of completion and skills to empower you as a TDS ISSS administrator!
