Extension of Stay
A student who is “currently maintaining status and making normal progress toward completing his or her educational objective, but who is unable to complete his or her course of study by the program end date on the I-20 must apply for a program extension.” You will need to notify our office before your I-20 expires. Valid reasons for an extension would include academic reasons, such as change of major or program, significant and documented medical issues or family emergency. Delays caused by academic probation or suspension are not considered valid reasons to extend a program.
