F-1 Program Length Extension
An F-1 student MUST maintain his/her status continuously. Part of maintaining your status as an F-1 student is making normal academic progress to finish your program of study by the end date listed on your Form I-20, “Certificate of Eligibility for Non-immigrant Student Status.”

If you are maintaining status and making normal progress towards program completion, your DSO MAY grant you an extension for delays caused by any of the following:

- Change in major or research topic (MBA or DBA Students Only)
- Unexpected research problems (DBA Students Only)
- Documented illness (provide medical documents, must be from either a licensed medical doctor, doctor of osteopathy, or licensed clinical psychologist)

Program Length Extension shall NOT be granted for any of the following reasons:

- Academic probation
- Suspension from school
- Request for an extension made after the program end date on your Form I-20

F-1 students are asked to contact a DSO four (4) months prior to the program end date.

You MUST contact a DSO if you are having trouble in your classes and cannot successfully complete the program requirements by the end date listed on your Form I-20. In order to avoid falling out of status, it is imperative to talk to a DSO before any issues become problems.
