Students who transfer from another U.S. academic institution to Catholic University are required to legally complete their transfer within 15 days of the start of the new semester. Failure to do so will render the student out of status and will require him or her to apply for re-instatement. Under new immigration rules, it must be shown that the failure to transfer in a timely manner was absolutely beyond the student's control.
Upon arrival on campus it is imperative that the student check in with the International Student and Scholar Services office to formally complete the transfer process. Even though they may have already gone through orientation at their previous school, transfer students should be prepared to attend the orientation session for new students.
