If you need additional time to complete your degree (including taking one or more classes over summer), you must submit a request for an I-20 extension through Terra Dotta:

  • Navigate to the Control Center
  • Select the icon for Program Extension
  • Follow the prompts to complete the form

An extension request must include:

  • A written recommendation from your academic advisor.
  • Documentation of financial support for your extension period.

NOTE: Failure to request a timely extension of your I-20 prior to its expiration may lead to termination of your SEVIS record, which would jeopardize your lawful immigration status in the U.S.
