Transfer Out Process

Student Transfer Out From Vanderbilt

  • Student should receive an official admission letter from the new institution.
  • Student will inform Vanderbilt ISSS advisor of intent to transfer by completing the Transfer Out Request in the ISSS Portal. This requires uploading a copy of the new admission letter and SEVIS transfer form from new school, if applicable.
    • Your assigned Vanderbilt ISSS advisor will determine transfer eligibility, complete any applicable transfer form, enter transfer request into SEVIS database, and set the SEVIS Release Date.
    • The new institution (“Transfer in” school) will then be able to issue a new I-20 (F-1) or DS-2019 (J-1) to the student.
