International students admissions

I am an international student on leave of absence at a US institution. I would like to transfer to another school.

Can I legally do that as a first year student or must I pick up from where I am in my current school? How will that affect my current SEVIS record?

Are you currently at college or are you still in high school?

I'm assuming you're an international student because you mention the SEVIS record? Maybe check this article out: https://studyinthestates.dhs.gov/students/instructions-for-transferring-to-another-school-as-an-f-1-student

Collegevine is a freshman admissions geared site. So I can’t help as I have no clue but my advice is.

Talk to someone at your colleges enrollment office(likely called the registrar) and ask about SEVIS as I have no clue what that is. You’d transfer as your current grade assuming you’ve completed more than a semester.
