If you will be transferring to OSU from another U.S. school or from OSU to another U.S. school, you will need to initiate the release of your SEVIS record from the old to the new school and check to see that your transfer is completed within the first 15 days of your first term at the new school. Prior to your arrival on-campus, please work with your previous school to complete and return the appropriate forms. Failure to complete this process within the first 2 weeks of starting classes could result in a violation of your F-1 or J-1 status.

If you are an INTO OSU student that will be starting a degree program at OSU, please speak with an international student advisor at INTO OSU. 

You may get the transfer forms on our Forms page.
