Students who were on OPT/STEM OPT may receive this email (or a similar email) after transferring to HU:

If you are no longer on OPT/STEM OPT, you no longer have access to the SEVP portal.

Again, please disregard this email.  It does not mean your SEVIS is not active anymore- it simply means you no longer have access to the portal since you are not on OPT.
