There might be such a word which helps me to search for related topics of transferring student from one university to another one.

You could simply use the term "transfer student" that you've already used in the question tags.

Collin's Dictionary:

a student who moves from one institution or course to another at the same level (e.g. undergraduate)

A student can both be said to apply to the new university as a transfer student, and be described as a transfer student at the start of their study at the new university (example).
