International students are given a program end date on their I-20/DS-2019. This end date indicates the duration of the students’ stay in the United States. If for some reason, the student needs to stay beyond his or her program end date, the student must fill out the “Program Extension” form and receive approval from his or her academic advisor first before the current program end date. The approved form should then be submitted to ISSS office in order to receive an extension on the current program end date.
One important thing to remember is to extend program before the expiration date.
If you need a program extension, please fill out and return the Program Extension Form.
