DHS/USICE RIN: 1653-AA87 Publication ID: Fall 2021 
Title: ●Removal of Obsolete Procedures and Requirements Related to F, M, and J Nonimmigrants 

This rule would remove unnecessary procedures that govern F, M, and J nonimmigrants since the implementation of SEVIS in 2003. These changes are necessary to alleviate confusion by the public, improve clarity, remove obsolete procedures and requirements used before the implementation of SEVIS or during the transition to SEVIS, and correct outdated terminology. Additionally, some sections will be redesignated to provide a sequential flow of the SEVP regulations.
