Transfers to another state are usually approved if the person on probation has a job or can get a job in the other state or has family there, states the Interstate Commission for Adult Offender Supervision. A request to transfer to another state to attend school is less likely to be approved but may be granted at the discretion of the court, according to Jail Exchange.
