If you are now studying at a U.S. university and planning to study at the Bowling Green State University, you must be in valid F-1 status to be eligible for transfer. Upon your admission to Bowling Green State University, you will receive a letter from International Student Services explaining the transfer procedure and listing documents that must be submitted to International Student Services before the form I-20 “Transfer Pending” will be issued and sent to you.
Upon arrival to Bowling Green, you must come to International Student Services with your immigration documents and the I-20 “Transfer Pending” to complete your transfer and receive a new I-20 “Transfer Completed” verifying your valid F-1 status as a student at Bowling Green State University.
Please remember that your transfer should be completed no later than within two weeks of the starting semester. Failure to do so results in the violation of your nonimmigrant status.
If you plan to leave the U.S. before attending Bowling Green State University, please be sure to get the Form I-20 “Transfer Pending” before your re-entry so that you may use this form to re-enter the U.S. or to apply for a new visa at the U.S. Consulate or Embassy, if necessary.
Note: If you are out of status, you need to discuss reinstatement to valid status with International Student Services.
