SEVIS Transfer Eligibility

An F-1 student may transfer to Kent State University of all of the following conditions are met:

  • You are in valid F-1 student status at another SEVIS-approved institution. This means you attended any of the following as an F-1 student: high school, University, College, or Language Training program.
  • You have been accepted into an academic program at Kent State University.
  • You can provide financial documentation that covers 1 year of expenses at Kent State University. Current Tuition Rates can be found here.

NOTE: If your SEVIS record is out of status, you must apply for reinstatement or depart the U.S. and re-enter on a new initial I-20 issued by Kent State University. If you need assistance with this process, please email isss@kent.edu and clearly identify that you need more information on transferring from one school in the U.S. to Kent State University, but that you are out of status.
