Extension of Program End Date

If you are unable to complete your program of study before the end date on your Form I-20 or DS-2019, you must request an extension BEFORE your current I-20 or DS-2019 expires.  
You are eligible for a program extension if:
  • Your I-20 or DS-2019 has not yet expired. The expiration date is indicated in item 5 of the I-20 and item 3 of the DS-2019.
  • You have been continually maintaining lawful F-1 or J-1 status.
  • The delay in completion of your program of study was caused by compelling academic or medical reasons. Federal regulations about extensions are strict; approval of an extension request is not guaranteed.
Log into the DuqGlobal International Student Portal to begin this request.
