End of Semester Reminder

If you will continue to attend SF State next semester:

Check Your I-20 Expiration Date

If your I-20 will expire at the end of the semester, you will need to apply for an I-20 extension at least SIX weeks BEFORE the expiration date.

Travel During Semester Breaks

If you will be traveling outside the U.S. while you are in F-1 status, your I-20 must be signed by an F-1 international student advisor at OIP.  See Travel Information for details.

Check Your Final Grades

You must complete a full-time course load.  If you received W or WU grade and have completed less than 12 (Undergraduate) or 8 (Graduate) units, please speak an F-1 international student advisor.  
You are not required to be enrolled in a full-time course of study during the summer session.

Reduced Course Load (RCL) or Full-Time Equivalency (FTE)

If you are graduating next semester and have less than full-time units left for graduation.  Obtain Reduced Course Load due to Completion of Study or Full-Time Equivalency (FTE) approval from OIP before the drop/add deadline.  If you only need one course to finish your program of study, it cannot be an online course.
