Change of Address
If you have moved since your last address update, you need to fill out a change of address form in the Office of International Education immediately. Students also need to update their addresses in their WINGS accounts. During SEVIS registration, many students still had a Baird Hall address on file with OIE (and this building no longer exists!). Remember keeping your address up to date with OIE is a responsibility of maintaining your visa status and crucial to staying in status!
If a student has not completed their program by the program end date listed on their I-20 (section #5), and they want to continue their program of study, he/she must apply for his/her program extension through OIE. Failure to do so will result in the student being ‘out of status.’ The maximum amount of time for any one extension is 12 months.
Steps to extending program:
Obtain new financial certification document(s) for the period of time the extension is requested.
Obtain a letter from student's academic advisor or graduate program director confirming the following points:
Student is making normal progress towards degree
Noting legitimate academic reasons for the delay (e.g. change in major, change in research topic, unexpected research problem, etc.)
Listing the new anticipated date of completion
The student must have maintained continuous full-time enrollment and is otherwise in status.
Complete ‘Request to Extend Program’ form.
Submit the ‘Request to Extend Program’ form, financial certification and required letter to the International Student Advisor at least two (2) weeks prior to the program end date.
Student will receive a new I-20 with a revised program end-date if all criteria have been successfully documented.
General Letter Request Form
