This was sent to all the SEVIS users (Schools) today….it seems that this does not look promising. If the guidance memo follows this, we have a huge problem. As we have mentioned earlier, until we see some sort of written resolution we should not be “celebrating”. Based on this email, it does not look good for the students of TVU

Re: Consideration of Former F-1 Students from Tri-Valley University for Enrollment
On January 18, 2011, the Student and Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP) either cancelled or terminated all initial, active and transfer-in student records associated with Tri-Valley University (TVU) in Pleasanton, California.
Students enrolled at TVU and those who entered the United States but have not enrolled at TVU are unable to maintain F-1 status.
If a former TVU student applies for acceptance at a school, consider the following while following normal admissions procedures:
RESPONSIBILITIES OF SCHOOL OFFICIALS
1. School officials must obtain an enrollment application and all subsidiary documents typically requested in order to make an admissions decision, including an assessment of the student’s finances, and they must maintain these documents in the F-1 student’s academic record.
2. If a student gains admission, a designated school official should contact the SEVP Help Desk at 800-892-4829 or SEVIShelpdesk@hp.com to manage the student record. Do not initiate a new SEVIS record for the student.
3. Employment authorization for F-1 students at TVU terminated January 19, 2011.”
