Follow these steps to file an I-20 extension with your international student advisor:

1. Submit a Request


2. Get a New Bank Statement 

Your bank statement should show the estimated amount of money that you will need to cover tuition, living costs and other necessary expenses to finish your academic program.

Ask your advisor how much needs to be on your new bank statement.

3. Submit These 2 Documents

PRIOR TO your program completion date, give these documents to your international student advisor.

Your program completion date is listed on your I-20.



Failure to process a request for extension before your I-20 expires will cause you to lose your F-1 status and all of its benefits.
