Change in Degree Plan
Immigration regulations allow 60 days after the completion of a degree program to receive admission to a new degree level and program. You must also apply for and receive a new I-20 within this 60 day period. Admission processes can take a long time, so be sure to plan ahead, apply early and submit all required I-20 documentation to International Student and Scholar Services.
International Student and Scholar Services will issue the I-20 upon receipt of admission notification and all required documentation. The office will also update your SEVIS record within 30 days of the start of the new degree plan.
Change in Major Field of Study
To change your major field of study as an F-1 student, apply to International Student and Scholar Services for a new I-20. Financial documents must be less than one year old.
To change your major field of study as a J-1 student, please schedule an appointment with your J sponsor.
