Form I-20 Extension

Students who are not able to complete their program by the expected completion date noted in Program End Date in Program of Study box on their Form I-20 must process an I-20 extension. The extension must be completed before the expiration date on their current Form I-20.

You must submit the following documents to CIE thirty (30) days before your Form I-20 expires.

A new Form I-20 will be issued to you within two (2) weeks.

Note: Failure to extend your Form I-20 will jeopardize your F-1 student status. If you lose your student status, you may be able to apply for Reinstatement which is processed through USCIS.
