This is the date you want your record transferred to the new school — usually the current semester or session completion date. IMPORTANT: We cannot “backdate” your transfer date; i.e., you must choose a current or future date.
NOTE: If you are transferring from WFU after completing your program, the transfer out date can be anytime between the current program end date listed on your I-20 and your 60-day grace period.
The hiatus between Wake Forest and your new school cannot be more than 5 months. Keep in mind the earlier the transfer date, the sooner the new school can gain access to your SEVIS record in order to issue your new I-20.
