Reinstatement of F-1 Status

A student who has failed to maintain their F-1 status may either apply to the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) to be reinstated to lawful F-1 status, or re-enter the U.S. using a new I-20 and pay the SEVIS I-901 fee again using the student’s new SEVIS number.
