Re-Admission applies to students who have not attended Clayton State in the previous 3 semesters or who have attended another college or university since their last enrollment at Clayton State. Re-Admission is initially processed through the Registrar’s Office to determine academic eligibility.
Note: “Re-Admitted” status is only valid the semester for which you apply and are accepted. In other words, if you are re-admitted for Fall, but your plans change, you will have to re-apply for re-admission another term.
International students interested in re-admission should:
Transfer, in this section, refers to immigration records, not academic enrollment or records.
F1 or J1 students are allowed to transfer their SEVIS record between SEVP-certified schools in the U.S and retain the same SEVIS identification number for no additional fee. However, successful transfer of SEVIS records does not obligate a school to transfer academic records, which are a matter of school policy. SEVIS transfer is a matter of federal policy. You should ensure you are academically accepted before requesting a SEVIS record transfer. Source: 8 CRF 214.2(f)(8)
Students may transfer to Clayton state during their current program of study (between terms), for an additional program of study (Ex: completion of an UG degree elsewhere > start of another UG degree here), or for a higher level program of study (Ex: completion of an UG elsewhere > start of a G degree here). Students who are "in status" are not required to leave the US or pay additional SEVIS fees, even if their visa has expired.
Students may transfer out to another SEVP approved school for the same reasons that students may transfer-in.
Transferring While Out-of-Status:
Students who are out of status may still be eligible to transfer, depending on various factors and time limits. Consult the ISS of the school you currently attend or where you were last enrolled for more details on this situation. The “I-20 Reinstatement -- Information and Process” form located in the ISS forms channel may be helpful.
