In order to transfer from UC Berkeley Extension to another U.S. school, please notify International Student Administrative Services at UC Berkeley Extension of your intent to transfer. Indicate the name of school to which you want to transfer, the date you wish your SEVIS record to be released to the new school, and proof of your acceptance to the new school.
Note: Although you may be applying to multiple new schools, UC Berkeley Extension can only transfer your SEVIS record to one school. Once your SEVIS record is transferred out, UC Berkeley Extension will no longer have access to your record. If you change your mind and wish to attend a different school, then you must work with the school that receives your SEVIS record.
UC Berkeley Extension will release your SEVIS record at the end of the current term or session, unless you can document your need for an earlier release date. The school to which you are transferring will not be able to issue you a new SEVIS Form I-20 until the transfer release date.
