Can there be a red asterisk to indicate which fields are mandatory in the International Application (only)?

CR Survey says: Defer to IA sub-committeeTBDTBD

On the Personal Information page: Given this is a requirement for SEVIS, can we remove the value for "Decline to State" in the Gender question response options?

CR Survey says: Defer to IA sub-committee

Can we add a checkbox question and data field for International Phone Numbers: “I do not have a US phone number”

CR Survey says: Defer to IA sub-committee

Consider the new international phone number format implemented in Oct 2017. Is this enough?

On the Visa/Dependents page: Can we change the Visa Type list to only display “F-1” or “No Visa Yet”. Can we remove or hide all the other visas listed?

CR Survey says: Defer to IA sub-committee

Consider: Visa Types field values were revised in Oct 2017 to remove everything except: F1, M1, J1, or Other or None.  Should we remove these?

On the Visa/Dependents page: Can we remove or hide I-94 number questions?

CR Survey says: Defer to IA sub-committee

Consider: I-94 section was revised in Oct 2017. Sub-committee should review and see if this is enough.

On the SEVIS page:  Can we change “How many OPT/CPT do you have?” to “how many OPT/CPT have you had”?

CR Survey says: Defer to IA sub-committee

On the SEVIS page:  Can we add a checkbox for “I’m currently on OPT”?
