J-1 Program Extension

Individuals in J-1 status may be eligible to extend their program end date (the expiration date in Section 3 of Form DS-2019). It is extremely important that an application for program extension should be made with the ISSFS before the DS-2019 expires. Program extensions are not granted after the DS-2019 expires.

Scholars should contact their department to coordinate a program extension with the ISSFS.

Students wishing to apply for a program extension 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 program before the expiration date on Form DS-2019, please contact the ISSFS to obtain a new Form DS-2019 documenting your shortened program.
