I-20 Extensions

You should never let your I-20 expire if you are still working on your academic program. If you need more time to complete your studies, you should apply for an extension of your I-20.

Starting a new program? Complete the New Program I-20 Request eform in iStart instead of requesting an extension.
How to Apply
  1. Talk to your academic advisor. Discuss your academic plan to find out how many more semesters you need before completing your program.
  2. Complete the I-20 Extension Request e-form in istart.iu.edu. You will be required to provide the name and email address of your advisor. An additional required e-form will be sent directly to your advisor by email.
  3. After your advisor completes the e-form, OIA will process your request within 2 weeks.
