Extending Your DS-2019

You can apply for a DS-2019 extension if it will expire before the date you expect to complete your program of study or academic objective.

Your DS-2019 can only be extended before it expires. Submit your request as soon as possible—no later than one month before the expiration date.

Complete the Request for Extension Form. Have your advisor sign it, and submit it to International Programs and Services.

Submit current financial documents to prove you have funds to continue your studies at Michigan Tech for at least one year.

The amount of financial support you need to receive a DS-2019 can change every year. Review our costs of attendance to figure out how much money you need.
