Change in Educational Level
An F-1 student is admitted to the U.S. to complete a specific educational program and may pursue a different or subsequent program at Bethel if the student complies with the procedures for the change of educational level and maintains status during the process. The Change in Educational Level is a notification procedure and does not require adjudication by USCIS. The student should contact the International Student Affairs Coordinator for specific information needed to facilitate the Change in Educational Level which will require updating and issuing a new I-20 with the new program information. A new financial ability statement will be required for the change of educational level.
