If you are already in the U.S. studying at another U.S. school, OR you have just completed a degree at another U.S. school, OR you are on a period of post-completion Optional Practical Training (OPT) from a prior degree completion, you should begin an immigration transfer process. This process is separate from the academic transfer process, and involves the transfer of your SEVIS academic record to UGA from your previous school.
