FLORIDA INTERNATIONAL UNIVERSITY
                                     F-1 GRADUATE STUDENT TRANSFER FORM
TO: All F-1 Student Applicants Transferring From a U.S. Institution to FIU.
As part of the application process to Florida International University, we must determine and verify your F-1 status with your previous
institution. Please follow the steps below:
          Step 1: You need to complete Section I.
          Step 2: Give this form to your international student advisor at your current/previous school to complete Section II.
          Step 3: The completed form must be mailed or faxed (305) 348-7441 to FIU’s Graduate Admissions office.

IMPORTANT: We cannot issue your I-20 for transfer until after your release date (that is, the day you will finish attending your
current institution), and until we receive the completed Transfer Form verifying that you are in status. Issuing your I-20 after the
release date could take a few weeks. Please allow ample time.
