All new undergraduate students will need to complete this form prior to leaving their home country. It will help us schedule your room and if we need to get you from the airport.
If an international student is approaching their Program of Study’s end date (stated on Form I-20) and additional time is needed to complete the program, the student must request a program extension before the completion date. It is the student’s responsibility to know the completion date and if necessary request an extension in a timely manner. Once the date has passed the university cannot approve a request to extend. Request for Program Extension must be made to the International Services office Designated School Official (DSO) before the completion date on the Form I-20. The office recommends you make this request at least one term prior to the last term before the I-20 expires. For example, if your I-20 is expiring at the end of the Fall term, then you should request an extension during the prior Spring term.
An F- 1 student is eligible for program extension if he or she:
- has continually maintained status and
- the delay in completion is caused by compelling academic or medical reasons, such as changes of major, or documented illnesses.
There might be a time when you are asked for a type of verification letter. Indiana Tech can provide different types of letters based on your need. You might need this for many reasons, including:

Students are allowed to change their degree program, minor, and/or concentration while at Indiana Tech. For international students, we must make sure that you are maintaining your status during these requests. This means you still need to be within your full-time student status and making sure that your I-20 shows the most accurate dates possible.
