I came to united states on B2 and then got changed to F1, right now I've a I-20 on which my status got changed. So my intake is starting in February 2015. I wanted to take a transfer from this university to different university. The university which I m holding I-20 will they make me out of status before I enroll into feb intake? So I have already switched from B2 to F1 and now If I will transfer it to different university does uscis or university will make me out of status?
Appreciate your kind suggestion on this matter.
All these questions should be discussed indeed, but not with us on AVVO, but the new college's DSO or an immigration attorney on a consultation.

I would recommend that you discuss these very issues with BOTH Universities Foreign Student School Advisorys. Then you don't have to guess. I believe they will both work with you. Universities motto is always to help their students grow and advance in their professional endeavors. Good luck.
If things do not work out, and they should, then contact an AVVO Immigration Attorney.

In order for your I-20 to be valid, you must be actively enrolled in the institution that issued the I-20. They don't have to "make you out of status," your I-20 will become invalid automatically the day that you decide to leave the current institution. You may indeed be "out of status" before you are actively enrolled in the university to which you want to transfer. You may want to consider continuing your studies with the current institution while you wait for enrollment with the new school. Speak with the international student's office of the new institution to find out if they could enroll you any sooner.
