Your I-20 is an electronic record maintained in the Student and Exchange Visitor Information System (SEVIS).  Only one school at a time can access a student's record.  If you wish to leave State College of Florida, Manatee-Sarasota and transfer to another school/academic institution, this record must be transferred to the institution you wish to attend.  To request a SEVIS transfer, complete this form.

Please Read Carefully:

  • The SEVIS record can only be transferred to one school.
  • Transfer must be reported within 60 days of your program completion/graduation.
  •  Report the transfer to the SCF Coordinator of Admissions & International Student Services who will select a "release date".  After this date, your record is transferred to your new school and they will then access the SEVIS record.
  • The "release date" is a date after the last day of exams. 
  • To request an earlier date:
    1. State the reason for the request and
    2. Attach supporting documents (acceptance letter including reporting date, advising date, testing date, etc.).
  • You must begin studies at the new school within 5 months of program completion at State College of Florida, Manatee-Sarasota.
  • The transfer may only be cancelled before the release to the new school takes place.
  • If you decide to continue at Manatee and cancel the transfer, you must notify the International Student Office before the release date.
  • This procedure is only to release your SEVIS record.  You must still complete all other requirements necessary for transfer.
