Transfer Request

Overview

When transferring from one school to another school within the United States, you must carefully follow certain procedures to maintain lawful F-1 or J-1 status. Please note that in this context the term "transfer" means changing schools, either in the middle of a degree program or between degrees, regardless of academic level.

 

Eligibility for Transfer

F-1 Students

  • The start date at your new school must be within 5 months of your "transfer out" date in SEVIS or your program completion, whichever is earlier. For students authorized for post-completion OPT, the new program start date must be within 5 months of your SEVIS "transfer out" date or the end of the OPT authorization, whichever is earlier. If the period of time between programs is longer than 5 months, your SEVIS record does not need to be transferred. Your new school will issue a new initial I-20 and new SEVIS number.

 

  • You must currently be maintaining F-1 status.

 

  • If you have already graduated, you must be within your 60-day grace period.

 

Transfer Procedures

To Otis

To transfer to Otis College, you must first apply for admission to Otis. Once admitted you will receive an acceptance letter; notify your current school's international office of your intention to transfer. Your adviser will transfer your SEVIS record to Otis College. Only your current school has access to your SEVIS record. In most cases, the "transfer out" date will be the last day of your final term at your current school.

 

From Otis

In order to transfer to another institution you must provide the Registration Office with an acceptance letter, and transfer form from your new school.

You may be accepted to more than one college or university but we can only transfer you in the SEVIS system to one school.

You must provide us with an acceptance letter when you have decided which school to attend.

Your new school will prepare a new I-20 for you after we release you in the SEVIS system.

Once you are released to your new school in the SEVIS system, you are no longer an Otis College student. If you have any questions regarding your status, you must contact the International Students Office at the new school.

If you are on OPT, CPT or working on campus, you must stop working on or before your release date because you will no longer be our student.
