In 2012, Walden University became a Student Exchange and Visitor Program (SEVP)–certified school. The SEVP is a part of the National Security Investigations Division and acts as a bridge for government organizations that have an interest in information on nonimmigrants whose primary reason for coming to the United States is to be students. On behalf of the Department of Homeland Security, SEVP manages schools, nonimmigrant students in the F and M visa classifications and their dependents. When Walden first registered with SEVP, we were able to give students some flexibility as they accustomed themselves to the new travel requirements. However, as of 2015, all international students are required to adhere to SEVP regulations and there are no exceptions.
