Once all the above items have been received and the Director of Enrollment Management has evaluated them for compliance to Judson standards, you will be notified of your admittance. An admit letter will be sent to you. At this point, we will provide you with a transfer request form. You will need to complete this form and take it to the International Office at your college or university, requesting that they release your SEVIS record to us before the start of the next session. This will enable us to issue you an I-20 from Judson without interrupting your F-1 status here in the United States.
