Request a Program Extension

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.

To request an extension of your program of study at UCEDA International, you may submit the required documents here:


    You must show evidence that you have enough money to live and study for the duration of your program of study.
