Transfer SEVIS Record to Brandeis

Students requesting to transfer their F-1 student SEVIS record from a previous school (or from OPT/Academic Training) to Brandeis University should review the SEVIS Transfer-In for F-1 Visa Holders information to confirm eligibility.

Documents Required

Transfer-In Forms and all Required Documents should be returned to the Office of Admissions that you are working with.

You will receive two I-20s throughout your SEVIS transfer. Brandeis will issue your "Transfer Pending" I-20 to you on or shortly after your SEVIS Transfer release Date. The ISSO must complete your SEVIS transfer within 15 days of the first day of classes. To do this, you will be required to complete your mandatory ISSO Online Check-In and register for classes as a full-time student (minimum of 12 credit hours). The ISSO will then complete your SEVIS transfer and issue you a Form I-20 indicating "Continued Attendance" at Brandeis University.
