Transferring Schools

Into UM

Students currently in the U.S. as F-1 or J-1 students at another college or university must make arrangements with their current school’s international office to transfer their SEVIS record to UM.  

Upon receiving confirmation of your admission to UM, the Office of International Services will contact you directly to begin the transfer process. Our Transfer-In Form will need to be completed by your current International Office.  The OIS at UM will be unable to access your SEVIS record until the ‘Transfer Out’ date is reached. At that time, the OIS will be able to generate a new I-20 or DS-2019 for you.

If you have any questions about maintaining your student status while transitioning between degree programs, please contact the OIS.
