Current students, who plan to transfer from Temple University to another university in the United States, must use the Transfer Out Request Form to notify International Student and Scholar Services (your "current school") of your intent to transfer, so ISSS can update your SEVIS record with this information.

Upon receipt of this form and a copy of your acceptance letter from your new school, ISSS will indicate in SEVIS that you are in "transfer out" status so that the university to which you are transferring (your "transfer school") will be given access to your SEVIS record.

Your transfer school will not have access to your SEVIS record until on or after the transfer date indicated in your SEVIS record and cannot generate a DS-2019 for you until that time. Unless you specifically request otherwise, the transfer date will be the last date of the academic term during which you submit this form to ISSS.

ISSS can only update your SEVIS record to "transfer out" to one university in the United States.

Important information:

  • If you decide not to transfer to the university you indicate on the Transfer Out Request Form, you need to inform ISSS of that fact before your program end date.
  • You must obtain your new DS-2019 from the new school within 30 days of the transfer date.
