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
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.
