You are about to access a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) computer system. This DHS computer system and the data therein are property of the U.S. Government and provided for official U.S. Government information and use. Access to this system is restricted to authorized users only. Unauthorized access, use, or modification of this computer system or of the data contained herein, or in transit to/from this system, may constitute a violation of section 1030 of title 18 of the U.S. Code and other federal or state criminal laws. Anyone who accesses a Federal computer system without authorization or exceeds his or her access authority, or obtains, alters, damages, destroys, or discloses information, or prevents authorized use of information on the computer system, may be subject to administrative penalties, fines or imprisonment.
This DHS computer system and any related equipment is subject to monitoring for administrative oversight, law enforcement, criminal investigative purposes, inquiries into alleged wrongdoing or misuse, and to ensure proper performance of applicable security features and procedures. As part of this monitoring, DHS may acquire, access, retain, intercept, capture, retrieve, record, read, inspect, analyze, audit, copy and disclose any information processed, transmitted, received, communicated, and stored within the computer system. If monitoring reveals possible misuse or criminal activity, notice of such may be provided to appropriate supervisory personnel and law enforcement officials. DHS may conduct these activities in any manner without further notice. Accordingly, there can be no expectation of privacy in the course of your use of this computer system. The use of a password or any other security measure does not establish an expectation of privacy. There is no expectation of privacy in any media, peripherals or other devices placed in or connected to the computer system.
Authority and Purpose: Sections 1154, 1184, 1372, and 1258 of Title 8, U.S. Code, authorize ICE to collect this information. ICE collects your information to facilitate the payment of the Student and Exchange Visitor Program fee for F, M, and J nonimmigrants (students, exchange visitors, and their dependents). This fee is mandated by Congress to support the program office and the automated system that keeps track of students and exchange visitors and ensures that they maintain their status while in the United States. Furnishing your information is voluntary; however, failure to provide it may result in denial of admission to the United States.
Routine Uses: Your information may be disclosed to other government agencies, contractors, or financial institutions as may be necessary to facilitate the payment and accounting of the Student and Exchange Visitor Program fee.
