F-1 students who do not complete their program of study by the expiration date noted on the I-20 form must apply for a program extension before the I-20 expiration date. Failure to extend your stay could jeopardize your legal status and will result in your having to file an application with USCIS for reinstatement to status.
After filling out this form please bring the Academic Advisors Recommendation Form [PDF] to your academic advisor or department chair

Once you have filled out this form and the Academic Advisors Recommendation Form ISS will issue a new I-20 to reflect the end date of the approved extended period and the new funding. You should keep this I-20 along with any previously issued I-20's for your records.
