TLC centers do not accept transfer credits or courses from any other non-TLC ESL programs. Students are tested upon entry and placed in the level of competency as determined by the results of the placement exam.
F-1 students wishing to transfer from a currently SEVIS-approved institution to a TLC center must provide an official transfer request form to the Director of Admissions at the TLC center of choice. In addition to the completed transfer request form, the student must provide the following:
Once your documents are received, you will receive a letter informing you of whether the transfer has been approved. If approved, the Director of Admissions will notify the official at your current institution that your I-20 has been authorized for transfer and issue an acceptance letter to your current institution, if required. There is no transfer fee charged.
F-1 students currently attending a TLC institution may request a transfer out to another SEVIS-approved institution at any time upon arrival and reporting to the TLC center. In order to complete a transfer-out request, the student must do the following:
Once these documents are provided to the Director of Admissions at your TLC center, the Director of Admissions will access your record in SEVIS and initiate the transfer. There is no charge for transferring out of a TLC center; however, you should refer to the TLC Refund policies for any charges that may apply to your registration and attendance at the center prior to transferring out.
TLC students transferring between TLC centers are not required to submit a new TLC application. A copy of the original application is required.
