Transfer students are F-1 students who are already studying in the United States and would like to change schools. If you who wish to transfer to the ASU-USA Pathways program, please apply to the ASU-USA Pathways program and then contact your student advisor at your current school.
If you have been admitted to the Global Launch ASU-USA Earned Pathways Program but can not attend on campus during the session that you applied for, you can still move toward your goal of attending ASU. We encourage you to join the online program, which has the same teachers and learning outcomes as the on-campus program--from the comfort of your own home.
If you have been admitted to the Global Launch ASU-USA Pathways Program, but cannot attend the session you applied for, you can defer your application.
What does "defer" mean?
When you defer your application, you change your admission to the next session. You will not be required to pay the application fee again, and can attend during the next session. However, this will impact your student immigration status.
Your SEVIS I-20 document is only valid for 30 days after your SEVIS start date. You can find your SEVIS start date on the I-20 document you received from Global Launch. If you defer your application within 30 days of your SEVIS start date, we will change your status to the new date. If you do not notify us, you will be required to submit a new online application and pay the $125 application fee again.
To defer your application, you must email GlobalLaunch@asu.edu and include the following information:
Your full name as listed in your passport
Your ASU ID number
The session to which you want to defer your attendance
