Transferring to Another School, Extending I-20, Early Registration

If you (1) enter the USA with an 1-20 from the Intensive English Program at Georgia State University; (2) transfer from another school/program and receive an I-20 from the IEP at GSU; (3) extend your GSU IEP I-20; or (4) early register for IEP classes and then decide to withdraw, there is a $600.00 administrative withdrawal fee.

Readmission Policy

Readmission for former students is handled on a case-by-case basis.  Students must consult with the IEP prior to submitting a request for readmission.  A reprocessing fee will be charged.
