So, please contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org and refer to the general procedure linked below.
- Step 1. Submit Your Documents
- Step 2. Pay the Processing Fees
- Step 3. Fill Out SEVIS I-20 Transfer Form
I-20 Reinstatement Process
When coming to the United States to study, you must comply with the terms of your F-1 student visa! Not following the terms of your visa can result in the termination of your I-20 Form, Certificate of Eligibility for Nonimmigrant Student Status. If your I-20 is suddenly terminated, it can leave you confused about your options, but we can help answer any questions you have about what to do next.
Change of Status
If you wish to change your status by replacing your current visa with a student visa, please contact an AELS representative after preparing the following information.
Even if you’ve lived here for a few years or are a long-time resident, everyday tasks can still be difficult if you don’t have good English skills. Our ESL classes teach material covering these everyday tasks and conversations that will help you communicate comfortably in most real-world situations.
