If you are an international student already in the U.S. you will be asked to complete an International Student Transfer Form - Undergraduate, Graduate (Immigration Purposes), through the International Services here at the University of Indianapolis and through the International Office of the school you are transferring from, prior to receiving an I-20 or DS-2019. Please note that this is a transfer in terms of immigration and is separate from any type of academic transfer process.
If you are already in the U.S. in a non-student visa classification, the International Services will help you determine whether you need to change to a student classification. There are many non-immigrant visa categories which permit study. However, if you have been offered an assistantship, scholarship or other type of aid, you may be required to change your status in order to accept the award.
If you have any questions about either situation listed above, please contact the International Student Advisor.
