POLICY: After the Program Completion Date on a student’s Form I-20 (Certificate of Eligibility), the student’s SEVIS record will auto complete within 60 days, unless a program extension is requested. An F-1 student currently maintaining legal status and attending classes as scheduled, but unable to complete the course of study by his/her Program Completion Date is eligible to apply for a program extension. The delay must be caused by compelling academic or medical reasons. Delays caused by academic probation or suspension are not acceptable reasons for program extension. A minimum three (3) weeks BEFORE the student’s Program Completion Date, a program extension request may be submitted to the International Student Services Office. A student seeking program extension after the program completion date is considered out of status and must file for reinstatement with USCIS.
