Follow transfer procedures. If you are currently in active
F-1 status, while either attending another institution in the U.S., within your
60-day grace period, or engaging in OPT, you must request that your previous
school transfer your F-1 student record to the University of North Florida.
This process is called a “SEVIS transfer” which is different from an academic
By transferring your SEVIS record, you maintain the same
current SEVIS ID number and you may remain in the U.S. between programs. Please
note that the start date at the new university must be within 5 months of your
last date of enrollment at your previous school or OPT authorization end date.
You will need to contact your current school to have the
SEVIS transfer process started. On the SEVIS transfer date, your new school
will gain access to your SEVIS record and therefore will be able to issue your Form
I-20. Please note that in order to issue your I-20, the new school will require
a copy of your passport and proof of funds.
