Apply to the college or university of your choice.  As a part of the application, the other school may ask for UTA to complete a transfer notification form which verifies your current immigration status.  If this is the case, submit the form provided by the school to the OIE front desk and we will fax it directly to the school within 7-10 business days.
  2. Gain admission to the college or university of your choice.
  3. Submit your admission letter along with a completed “Request to be Released from UTA” form.  Be sure to specify the date you would like your SEVIS record to be released to the new school.
  4. Within 7-10 business days of receipt and/or on the day of release you select, UTA’s OIE will release your SEVIS record to the new school.
