International Student Services (ISS) is responsible for federally-mandated reporting for UW degree-seeking students who hold either an F-1 or J-1 Exchange Visitor visa. The ISS is also required to report data on UW alumni who are maintaining their F-1 or J-1 visa status through post-completion employment benefits. These reports are submitted through the Student and Exchange Visitor Program and contribute to the SEVIS by Numbers statistics as well as IIE’s Open Doors annual research on international students in the U.S.
The data used comes from the University’s Student Database and is for informational purposes only. The statistics reported through the SEVIS system may be different than the University’s student record data. The Student Database reflects only those F-1 and J-1 visa holders registered at the time of the report and does not include those undergoing a change of status or change to permanent residency. The following visualizations have been created using official University data but do not reflect the data reported through the SEVIS immigration system.
