Program Extension

Students in F-1 status may be eligible to extend the end date in section #5 of their Form I-20 if they will be unable to complete their final degree requirement by the current date indicated. The end date in the #5 section must be in the future if a student has not yet completed his or her studies and is not completing those studies during post-completion OPT.

Extremely important: An application to request a program extension should be made with the staff of International Student, Scholar and Faculty Services (ISSFS) prior to the end date on the Form I-20. Program extensions are not granted after the Form I-20 has expired.

To apply for a program extension you must bring the following to the ISSFS during office hours:
  1. Extension of Time to Complete Program Form
  2. Proof of funding
  3. Proof of valid health insurance
  4. Passport
If you will complete your final degree requirement before the "complete studies no later than" date in section #5 on Form I-20, please contact the ISSFS to obtain a new Form I-20 for your shortened program.
