This includes successful completion (C grade or better) of English Composition, Oral Communication, Critical Thinking, and Quantitative Reasoning (Math) courses. If you have applied to an impacted program/major, the term you must complete the requirements may be earlier. Please check the Impacted majors webpage.
  3. Do not  send information unless it is requested on your To Do List on BroncoDirect.
  4. Take TOEFL or IELTS exams (if requested on your) To-Do List on BroncoDirect.

  3. Register for the Mandatory University Transfer Orientation Program after paying your ECD.
    • The last day to register or pay for orientation is June 1.
  4. Submit the documents required for the issuance of your I-20 as soon as possible, but no later than July 15:
    • Upon admission, you may submit an online I-20 eRequest. You will be asked to upload the following:
      • Bank Statement, Letter or Financial Guarantee (estimated cost of attendance)
      • A photocopy of your passport (name and photo ID pages).
      • Upon receipt of the above documents, the International Center will issue an I-20 and notify you via email
  5. If you currently attend a U.S. School, request in writing, to your current school’s International Center to transfer your SEVIS record to the Cal Poly Pomona International Center if already in the United States.
    • Please do so no later than the end of your last term at your current school. This process may take up to 3 weeks.
    • Cal Poly Pomona’s SEVIS school code is LOS214F00334000.
    • Failure to inform your previous school of your intent to transfer could cause your SEVIS record to “complete” or be “terminated” by your previous school, which would require reinstatement by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.
    • If you plan to travel before your first term at Cal Poly Pomona, failure to re-enter the U.S. with your Cal Poly Pomona I-20 would also create a visa status problem.
  6. Attend all required Orientation programs.
    • Mandatory University Transfer Orientation will take place in June - August and session dates are based on your major. Register for and pay for orientation fee online via BroncoDirect immediately after you pay your ECD to facilitate your early enrollment in classes for the Fall 2017.
