International Student Program

Welcome to LBCC!  Transfer-in admission is only available to F-1/M1 active students who are currently inside the U.S. studying at another SEVIS certified institution. We would like to help you with the transfer process by providing the following transfer requirements information.

1. Complete Transfer Eligibility Form (LBCC does not accept students with Terminated/Out of Status SEVIS Records) 

2. Complete and submit the online International Student Application Form and email all required documents individually, including PDF copies of the following documents:

  • Current/Active I-20.
  • F1/M1 Visa.
  • I-94 print out page.

3. Your current school can only release your "active" SEVIS record after you have successfully completed Step 1 and 2 at which time you will be given an official acceptance letter to request the transfer of your active SEVIS record to LBCC.

**Transfer students planning to travel to their home country before the start of the semester must notify our office to inquire about your official program start date and plan your travel dates accordingly. NO late arrivals will be permitted.  

NOTE: Your application deadline may vary according to the 60 days grace period from your last class attendance that is required by immigration to be admitted and receive an acceptance letter to request the transfer of your SEVIS record to LBCC (Example: last class attendance 5/20th, you must be admitted before 7/20th. This will be your deadline, whichever date comes first.).
