Program Extension

J-1 Program Extension

Individuals in J-1 status may be eligible to extend their program end date (the expiration date in Section 3 of Form DS-2019). It is extremely important that an application for program extension should be made with the Center for International Programs (CIP) before the DS-2019 expires. Program extensions are not granted after the DS-2019 expires.

Scholars should contact their department to coordinate a program extension with Academic Affairs Office of the Provost.

Students wishing to apply for a program extension must bring the following to the CIP during office hours:

  1. Extension of DS2019
  2. Proof of funding
  3. Proof of valid health insurance

If you will complete your program before the expiration date on Form DS-2019, please contact the CIP to obtain a new Form DS-2019 documenting your shortened program.
