Transfer to a New School

SEVIS Release request form

As an F-1 visa holder, you have a SEVIS record with the U.S. federal government. Only one U.S. institution has access to your SEVIS record at any time. If you have been studying at Kansas State University or are participating in OPT recommended by ISSS and now plan to attend another U.S. educational institution, your SEVIS record must be released by ISSS to the new, SEVIS approved institution. After the release date, the new institution will be able to issue a new I-20 for you.
