Dartmouth College F-1 (I-20 Form) or J-1 (DS-2019 Form) Extension Request
This form must be completed and submitted by any department sponsoring an F-1 or J-1 status international student or scholar if they wish to extend their I-20 form (F-1 students) or their DS-2019 form (J-1 students and scholars). This form can also be completed and submitted by the international student of scholar.Extending the I-20 or DS-2019 form will allow the international to remain at Dartmouth for a longer period in order to complete the academic program, however it will not give the international a new visa in your passport. A new visa is not required, once we extend the program, unless the international departs the U.S. and wishes to re-enter to return to Dartmouth. To get a new visa, once we issue the new extended I-20 form or DS-2019 form, the international would have to apply for a visa at a U.S. Embassy or Consulate.
