Transferring from Boston University
If you have completed your academic activities at Boston University and wish to transfer to a different school/program, you must contact an ISSO advisor and follow proper transfer procedures before attending the new school/program.
Transferring with Employment, Training, or Internships
Students Working On Campus
Your on-campus work authorization ends once you transfer your SEVIS record to the new school.
Students on Optional Practical Training
If you are currently on Optional Practical Training, your work permission will become invalid once you transfer to another school’s I-20, and you will lose any unused portion of your work authorization period.
Students on Academic Training
If you are currently on Academic Training, your authorization will become invalid once you transfer to another J program sponsor’s DS-2019 and you must stop the training activity immediately. You should consult with the Responsible Officer of the new J program about possibilities for any future training or employment.
