International Transfer Students
Instructions for Transferring Your I-20 to SBCC
To transfer your I-20 to SBCC from another U.S. school to SBCC you must first be accepted to SBCC. Next, your Advisor/Designated School Official (DSO) at your current school needs you to provide the following:
- Copy of your SBCC Offer of Admission
- Request to release your I-20 to SBCC
Your current Advisor/DSO will then work with you to choose a transfer release date. This is the date SBCC will have access to your I-20 SEVIS record. Several factors go into selecting this date:
- Academic needs
- Travel plans
- SBCC program start date (refer to Welcome Week dates)
- Transfer grace period
If you plan to travel outside of the U.S. during the break between schools, notify your SBCC Advisor/DSO to request a travel I-20. Provide your name, K#, and travel dates. If you wish to have your I-20 mailed to your home country via express mail, you can create a shipping label on study.eshipglobal.com.
If you are not traveling, we will issue your SBCC I-20 at the end of your Welcome Week.
