Transfer-In Student Process

The term “transfer” for immigration purposes applies to students who come to CSI from another U.S. college, university, ESL program, or high school. If you are a transfer student, follow the directions below.
Transfer Eligibility

  • You must have been maintaining lawful F-1 status throughout your program of study;
  • You must request that your SEVIS record be transferred to CSI within the 60-day period following your last date of attendance, Optional Practical Training, or authorized vacation at your previous/current school; and
  • You must enroll full-time at CSI within 5 months of your last attendance at the previous school.

If you have violated the terms of your current F-1 status, you will need to depart the U.S. to make a new entry with an initial attendance I-20. Immigration reinstatement is only possible if your failure to maintain status resulted from circumstances beyond your control. Contact Samra Culum at 208-732-6383 for assistance.
