Immigration Transfer.docx; January 2012
SEVIS Immigration Transfer Request
for F-1 & J-1 Students
This form is used to request an Immigration Transfer of your F-1 or J-1 student record through SEVIS to another U.S.
institution. If you plan to continue your degree or begin a new program at a new school, this process must be
completed before
beginning the new program. Transfer restrictions may apply.
You are only eligible to transfer to another U.S. institution if you have maintained valid F-1 or J-1 status at UR. You must
remain registered full-time or be pursuing authorized post-completion employment until the date your SEVIS record is
released to the new school. After this date, you must request a new I-20 or DS-2019 from your new school and begin
studies there in the next available term. Full-time registration at the new school must begin within 5 months of the
SEVIS release date or the I-20 completion date from UR, whichever is earlier. After the release date has passed, you will
not be able to use UR-based work permissions and the ISO will no longer be able to access your immigration record.
Note: If you intend to transfer before you complete your academic program (either by withdrawal or academic transfer),
you must get approval from your academic Dean.
