Hello,my name is Judith. Thank you for this opportunity to answer your questions.

If the transfer out School will not release your SEVIS to the new school you would have to get a new I-20, have the transfer in school recommend reinstatement and pay a new fee and apply for reinstatement on form I-539, or leave the country and return on your current valid visa with the new I-20.

You could fly to Bahamas, surrender your old I-94 and come back with the new I-20 and get a new I-94 with your old unexpired visa stamp

 

Here us the link to the form. The fee is $290

Expert:  Judith replied 1 year ago.

We cannot call you.

You do not need a new visa if you have not been out of status for more than 5 months.

If you remain here you file the I-539 for reinstatement and transfer with the new I-20 from the new school.

Or you depart, and return with the new I-20 using the old visa. You only need a new visa if you were out of status for more than 5 months.

It does not create any problem with the old visa because you did report to that school, you went to 3 classes and now want to leave.
