Information Regarding Transferring Out
For F-1 visa international students transferring from Madison College to another college.
Instructions for Student: (Also available in PDF):
The first step with transferring your SEVIS I-20 record to another educational institution is to be admitted by another college.
After being admitted, provide to CIE the following items by email or in-person:
1. Copy of your admission letter to the new college.
2. Your desired transfer release date for SEVIS. Please consider the following information when determining which date you would like your I-20 record to be transferred to your new college in SEVIS:
3. Possibly: Some colleges may provide you with a form to be completed by CIE. This form is generally used to gather information about your current visa status, dates of enrollment at Madison College, and your requested transfer release date. CIE will return the form directly to the new college, unless requested otherwise.
With the above information, CIE will schedule your I-20 record to transfer in SEVIS on the transfer release date or, if additional processing time is needed, as soon as possible after this date. You will be notified by email after the transfer has been successfully scheduled.
If you change your mind and wish to either remain at Madison College or to transfer to a different college, please notify CIE immediately. SEVIS only allows us to cancel or change the transfer before the originally scheduled release date.
If you have any questions about this process please email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit CIE to meet with the International Student Specialist. Thank you!
