Your username is your Illinois State email address and your login is unique to this portal. If you have forgotten your password for the portal, please click on "Forgot your password?" at the bottom of the login page. If you continue to have trouble logging in, please email email@example.com.
Step 3: Click on the "Requests" tab within your scholar profile and select SEVIS Transfer Out from the list of available requests.
