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