DHS/USICE RIN: 1653-AA71 Publication ID: Spring 2021 
Title: Eligibility Checks of Nominated and Current Designated School Officials of Schools That Enroll F and M Nonimmigrant Students and of Exchange Visitor Program-Designated Sponsors of J Nonimmigrants 

DHS has determined that the proposed regulation entry should be withdrawn from the Unified Agenda. ICE’s Student and Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP) protects national security by ensuring that DHS and Department of State (DOS) have essential data related to non- immigrant students and exchange visitors. ICE originally proposed vetting all designated school officials (DSOs) and responsible officers (ROs), who ensure that ICE has access to accurate data on covered individuals via the Student and Exchange Visitor Information System (SEVIS).  The Department is reevaluating the need to implement such vetting procedures.
