Students that have been on campus before Terra Dotta and after Terra Dotta say that handling processes like OPT, CPT, RCL are much easier. To quote one of our students, 'I don't have to trek across campus to multiple offices. Now I can do it all online on my own time, it's so easy.'

Before Terra Dotta, we had a complex tracking system of spreadsheets and databases to monitor student enrollment and visa status maintenance. With Terra Dotta, all of our SEVIS data and student information is centralized. For example, we can now run a query in under a minute to see any student that is under-enrolled and immediately contact them before they fall out of status.
