Facebook Pixel SEVP OPT Portal | Western Kentucky University



The Student and Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP) who administer SEVIS has a web portal for F-1 students who are on post-completion optional practical training. This portal is designed to help those students update their information about their jobs or their addresses themselves.

Students who get approved by the USCIS for post-completion optional practical training (OPT) or a STEM extension of OPT will receive an email from the government. This email will only come from this email address: Do-Not-Reply@ice.dhs.gov

NOTE: To avoid possible scams or phishing emails please make a note that any emails about the SEVP portal that do not come from the ISSS at WKU or the above address may be scams. ICE/SEVP assure us that there will never be a cost to use the SEVP portal. So do not respond to any emails that suggest you have to pay for this service. 

Very good resources about the portal are on the web site “Study in the States.gov” Here is a link:


We hope that you find this additional service helpful!
