F1 / J1 Student Extension of I-20 / DS-2019
In order to complete your studies at Cornell, and maintain your legal status in the US you must apply for an extension of your I-20 or DS-2019 before the program end date listed on that form. If you do not apply before the end date, you will be out of status.
You may print the F1 or J1 student extension application above or pick it up at the ISSO.
Bring the following to the ISSO and sign in to speak with an advisor (if you are outside the US, you may email scanned documents to the ISSO):
PLEASE NOTE: This procedure will extend your I-20 / DS-2019 but not the visa stamp in your passport. If you have an expired visa stamp in your passport, it is ok to remain in the US but the next time you travel out of the US and need to re-enter, you will still need to apply for a new visa stamp to re-enter the US.
