If you are planning to transfer to another school, you must notify the ISO. An international student must notify the ISO of his/her final decision to transfer by completing the SEVIS Record of Transfer Form located online at BC International on the website. The student will be asked to upload a copy of the acceptance letter from the school he/she is transferring to. The ISO will transfer the student’s SEVIS record on the date the student has requested the SEVIS record to be transferred on that application. All employment authorizations will end the day the SEVIS record is transferred. Transfer Outs will be processed only when an international student is academically eligible to transfer.
An international student may remain in the United States up to five (5) months when transferring out of LDS Business College without pursuing a full-time course load when in-between schools. The 5 months are calculated from the last day the international student attended LDS Business College and the first day of the semester in the school the international student transfer to. If that time period is longer than 5 months, then the SEVIS record cannot be transferred.
International student status and I-20 forms are issued in connection with a specific college and program. When an international student transfers to another institution, the new educational institution will issue a new I-20 Form indicating the new educational institution, new program, and the new expected program end date.
