Program Extension

If your I-20/DS-2019 will expire prior to the completion of your program, you must submit a program extension request. Each request is evaluated separately and approval is not guaranteed. Please turn in a completed Program Extension request at least 1 month prior to the expiration of your I-20/DS-2019. The following documents are required.

  1. Program Extension form
  2. Admission letter to new program
  3. Proof of funding for new program

Please allow 7-10 business days for this request to be processed.


Change of Level

If you wish to change your major, you must first make the change with the Registrar (undergraduates) or with the Graduate School. Once the change is made in banner, please submit a document request form to our office in 116 Allen Hall so that we can process the change and print a new I-20/DS-2019.

If you will begin a new degree level at MSU, you must submit a Change of Level Request. Along with the form, please submit a copy of your admission letter and proof of funding for the new program. Upon submission of these documents, you will be issued an Initial Attendance-Change Educational Level I-20.
