If you are starting a new program at Harrisburg University after graduating from another and changing to a different academic program (e.g. from a Bachelor's to a Master's program or from a Master's to another Master's program), ISO must issue you a new I-20.

You will not receive your new I-20 until the start of your new program.  If you require an Initial I-20 prior to the start of the program, you may request one from the ISO.

Once you have received a letter of acceptance for the new program of study and you have registered for courses for the new program, you may submit a request to the ISO for your new Form I-20.  

If there is going to be more than 60 days between your program end date and the start date of your new program, you must request the new I-20 during the grace period before your SEVIS record completes.

You will need to submit a Change of Educational Level Request in the Terra Dotta System. With your request, please upload the following documents as Evidence of Financial Support:

  • Affidavit of Support
  • Supporting bank statement for your extended period of study

Your I-20 will be prepared by the ISO and sent to your HU email address by your new program start date. The I-20 for the new degree program cannot be issued until after the previous program has been conferred in your HU record.

When you are ready to submit your request, please login to the Terra Dotta System and navigate to the Request Center to find the Change of Education Level request. We recommend that students access Terra Dotta through a desktop/laptop device, as mobile compatibility is limited.
