How To Transfer Your F-1 Visa To Another School

F-1 English language training students are welcome to transfer for the summer semester starting on May 18th.  As long as your last day in class at your current school is after December 18th, you should be able to transfer your I-20 (F-1 visa) to Forum for the summer semester.   To find out if you are eligible to transfer please contact Maria at [email protected].
