Pay Your SEVIS fee
The SEVIS fee is a $200 USD payment required to process your
visa application. All foreign nationals must pay this fee in order to come to
the United States to study at a college or university.
This fee is paid to the United States government, not to La
Roche University. Students should pay the fee after they receive their Form
I-20 in the mail from La Roche University.
Students must fill out the Form I-901 and pay the fee before
scheduling a visa appointment. To find more information about Form I-901, pay
the SEVIS fee or check the status of your payment, please go to
Payment options include credit card, debit card, check or
money order. For information and directions on fee payment options, please visit here.
Students need a copy of the receipt for proof of payment at
the visa interview.
