          It's not. I recently transferred from one school to another one. Things went great. The SEVIS transfer is made from your previous school to your new one. You need a new visa only if you travel out and need to renter the country, since your visa has the school that you attend. So you want to make sure that when you're coming back your visa has the same school name as your most current I-20.

                  After I changed my university, I got my SEVIS transferred from previous school to current one. Then I traveled to India with the same VISA carrying previous school name and current I-20. As long as you have valid VISA the school name on the VISA does not matter. You just have to make sure your SEVIS record is updated and you carry ur current I-20 with you.....

                        I had the same situation.... U just need to fill the transfer out form in your old university and fill the transfer in form in your new university... Once u get the the i 20, you need to show the new i 20 at the port of entry...!! This will not at all be a problem...!!!
