Each semester students from all over the United States transfer to Virginia International University. For students who are interested in coming to our campus in Fairfax, Virginia to take their courses, the transfer process is quick and easy.
To begin the process of transferring to VIU, please follow these easy steps:
- Submit the required application documents and fees For more information on what documents are needed for your program, please click on the link provided: Admissions Requirements
In addition to the Admissions Requirements, you will also need to submit the following:
- Official Transcript from your current College or University
- Copy of all previous I-20’s
- Copy of your I-94
- Copy of your F1 Visa
- SEVIS Transfer Eligibility Form
Once the VIU Admissions Department receives all of your application documents and fees, and your application packet is complete, an Admissions Officer will begin to evaluate your file for admission. Once admitted to the University, you will receive a letter of Acceptance, as well as an SEVIS Transfer Eligibility Form that needs to be completed by your current College or University. Your current school will need to fill out this SEVIS Transfer Eligibility Form and send it back to VIU. This form will allow VIU to transfer your SEVIS information. Once your SEVIS information is released to VIU, we will then be able to create a new I-20 for you to study at VIU!
When your acceptance letter is ready for pick up, we will contact you via email and or phone.
