The SEVIS Fee and Other Fees

Once you receive the DS-2019 or I-20, you must pay the SEVIS fee and obtain the payment receipt (which must be purchased 3 days before the interview).  Online payment is the best option, as the receipt can be printed off immediately.
In addition to the SEVIS fee, the regular application fee (MRV fee) will be due.  Information about how to pay this fee can be found at the appropriate embassy or consulate website.
