Transfer Procedures

Transfer Out (from Georgia State University to another J1 sponsor)

J-1 scholars who wish to transfer from Georgia State University to another J-1 sponsor may do so as long as:

  • The transfer is consistent with the goals of the original program objective at Georgia State
  • The J-1 scholar is currently in valid program status
  • The transfer will not extend the scholar’s stay beyond the permissible duration for his/her category
  • The transfer occurs BEFORE the expiration date on the J-1 scholar’s current DS-2019 form.

If you wish to transfer out of Georgia State University to another program sponsor, please fill out this J1 Scholar Transfer Out Form, then call 404-413-2070 to make an appointment to speak with the J-1 Scholar Advisor in ISSS.

Transfer In (coming to Georgia State University from another J-1 sponsor)
