Changing Majors/Levels

Changing Majors/Levels

Changes to a student’s academic status must be reflected on the I-20. If you change your major or academic level, request an updated I-20. 

Process

  1. Submit the ISSS Immigration Process Request form and email a copy of your financial guarantee or bank statement that is not older than six months with adequate funds to cover the cost of your new academic program to isss@udayton.edu
  2. You will be notified by email when this process is complete and your I-20s are ready to be issued. 

Frequently Asked Questions

When changing majors, will I be given additional time to finish the new program?
Yes, but not immediately. When changing your major, the updated I-20 ISSS issues you will not include an extended program end date. Instead, when your I-20 approaches its original program end date, you should submit a request for an extension.

What should I do with my old I-20 after I receive the new I-20 with the updated major/level information?
Students should keep all I-20s issued to them. Take these with you when you travel outside of the U.S.
