Being a student with an F-1 status, you are responsible for learning, understanding,
and complying with the U.S. laws and regulations that apply to you. Many times, this
simply requires you to notify the International Student Advisor of any changes in your address, finances, or schedule causing your I-20 to become
inaccurate. Use the forms below to communicate with your advisor these changes. In
many cases the International Student Services Office will issue you a new I-20 which
you will need to pick up.
It is not required you request authorization to travel outside the United States;
however, you will want to make sure the signature on your I-20 is current and your
visa and passport are still valid. Signatures are valid for one year or 6 months for
those on OPT. The International Student Advisor and International Admissions Rep are the only ones
authorized to sign the I-20.
If you are a student, you are required to report any change of address to the college
within 10 days of the address change [this includes changing rooms within a dormitory].
If you are a student you are required to pursue a full course of study [12 hours of
credit] during normal enrollment periods (Fall and Spring semesters). The Reduced
Course load Certification must be completed prior to dropping below a fulltime status.
You are allowed to deviate from this full course of study only with PRIOR authorization
from the ISA, and only under very limited circumstances. If you want to drop below a full course
of study, please check with your International Student Advisor via email.
Sometimes, and for a variety of reasons, students leave the college early or unexpectedly.
Some of theses reasons include early graduation, leave of absence, suspension, expulsion,
or family emergencies. You are required to inform the ISA if you plan to leave the college before the date on your I-20 and the reason for
If you decide to attend another school in the U.S. you must notify the ISA of your intent to transfer and what school you plan to transfer to. The school you
are transferring to may have a form for the International Student Services Office
to complete. The ISA will enter a "Release Date" in SEVIS (usually the day the current
semester ends). After this date is reached the new school can issue you a SEVIS I-20.
You will have to report to the ISA at the new school within 15 days of the program
Note: If you are transferring to King University from another school in the U.S. give
this SEVIS transfer form to your school's International Student Office so that your SEVIS record may be transferred.
You must apply for an extension of your program prior to the expiration date on your
Form I-20 if you cannot complete your program by that date. Requests for extensions
should be submitted prior to the expiration date on the Form I-20 so the extension
process can be completed prior to the expiration date on the Form I-20. If you think
you will need another semester or year to graduate, please see your ISA as soon as possible.
You must notify the ISA of any accompanying dependents in F-2 or F-1 status and provide biographical information
(full name, visa information, etc) and immigration information (passport and visa
information, etc) regarding those dependents. The ISA is required to report information
to USCIS regarding your dependents.
When a substantial change is needed for your Form I-20, you will be required to submit
a completed Student Finance Form (with appropriate documentation) before the Form I-20 can be adjusted.
