Program Extension

As an F-1 or J-1 student, you are given a specific period of time to complete your degree requirements. For F-1 students, this period of time is reflected in Section five of your Form I-20, and for J-1 students, this period of time is reflected in Section three of your DS-2019. If you are unable to finish your degree requirements by that date, you must apply for a program extension BEFORE your current document expires.
