News and Announcements

Maintaining Full-time Status

All Students: Last Semester Memo must be filed with the Slutzker Center by September 22, 2017

If Fall 2017 will be your last semester, and you will be registered less than full-time (Graduate students: 9 credit hours, Undergraduate students: 12 credit hours) you must file a Last Semester Memo with the Slutzker Center no later than September 22 in order to be considered to be maintaining valid F-1 or J-1 student status.    

Exception: Students who will be less than full-time in their last semester must take courses that meet in the classroom at Syracuse University unless authorized for full-time CPT.  Students authorized for full-time CPT who will not be taking courses that meet in the classroom at Syracuse University must file a Certificate of Full-Time Status.

Note: You can only have one last semester for immigration purposes. Please discuss any concerns you have about not being able to graduate in December with your academic department before you submit a Last Semester Memo. Once you submit this form, we will adjust the expected completion date on your I-20 form or DS-2019 form, if necessary, to reflect the December 2017 completion date.

Travel Signature Week

If you plan to travel outside the U.S. during the 2017-2018 academic year or during Summer 2018 and return to the U.S., you will need your I-20 (F-1) signed for travel on page 2 or DS-2019 (J-1) signed in the box called "Travel Endorsement".

The Slutzker Center will be providing “Travel Signatures” as follows:

Monday, October 9 thru Thursday, October 12

Bird Library, 5th floor

9 am – 4 pm

Friday, October 13

Slutzker Center

9 am - 4 pm

You must bring your I-20 or DS-2019 to obtain a “Travel Signature”. 

This travel signature will be valid for one year (12 months) from the date it is signed or until the expected completion date on your I-20…whichever is earlier. If your expected completion date is before one year, the travel signature will be valid for less than one year.

If you have already obtained a travel signature on page 2 of your I-20 or in the Travel Endorsement box of your DS-2019 in the past 12 months, you do not need to obtain another signature at this time.  

If you need a travel signature before the week of October 9, you may obtain one during the Sluztker Center’s Advisor On Call hours, Monday-Friday, 11 am-3 pm.
