• Program Extension

    Look carefully at item #5 on your I–20. This is the date you are expected to complete your program of study. This date assumes that you are enrolled full-time in your program of study and making "normal progress." Full-time enrollment and making "normal progress" are requirements for maintaining your F–1.

    If during the course of your studies at The New School you find that you will not finish by the completion date indicated on your I–20, you must request a program extension. You must make your request at least 30 days before the stated completion date.

    F-1 students must submit:

    ISSS Service Request Form

    J-1 Students must submit:

    Certificate of Program Extension/Completion Form (PDF) completed and signed by your academic advisor

    Current (within four months) financial documents covering the estimated expenses of your program until the new program end date that was approved by your advisor

    For Year 1, funds must be liquid (currently in a bank account).

    For future years, show how funds will be available (e.g., investments, sponsor's proof of salary or recent tax documents showing income).

    If you have a sponsor, submit a new Affidavit of Support completed and signed by your sponsor.
