A student who is maintaining valid F-1 status may transfer from one DHS-approved school to another by following the transfer procedures. Simply transferring academically from one school to another does not transfer a student's F-1 status unless the student and DSO of the receiving school follow these procedures.
The transfer process does not require government adjudication. Rather, it is a notification process that takes place as an update event in SEVIS with the active participation of the student, the transfer-out school, and the transfer-in school.
Students who wish to transfer from Salisbury University to another U.S. college or university, need to provide the following:
- An original Request To Transfer Out form
- A copy of academic admission to the new university
