SEVIS Fee Reimbursement for International Graduate Employees (GEs)


Per the GTFF Collective Bargaining Agreement (Article 23, Section 6), for those GEs who pay a SEVIS fee to attend their current graduate program at the University of Oregon and who are employed as GEs in the term in which they matriculate in their current graduate program, the SEVIS fee paid by the GE will be reimbursed upon request and proof of payment unless that fee has already been paid or reimbursed by another source.

Reimbursement Request Process

  1. Submit the reimbursement form linked below. A PDF of the student’s SEVIS I-901 Payment Confirmation must be included with the request.
  2. Within 30 days, the Division of Graduate Studies will update the student by email about the status of their request. 
  3. If approved, the SEVIS fee reimbursement will be credited to the student's UO billing account, accessible in DuckWeb. The reimbursement, less any balance due, will be refunded to the student via direct deposit (or via paper check if direct deposit has not been set up).
