An M-1 student is admitted to the United States for “duration of status,” that is, to complete an educational program. However, if a student must remain in an educational program beyond the date originally estimated for completion of the program, as stated in item 5 on the initial Form I-20 A/B issued to begin the program, the student must comply with INS procedures for a program extension. Applications must be made through The no later than 45 days before the expiration date on the original Form I-20 A/B.
An M-1 student who does not apply for a program extension 45 days before the expiration date noted in #5 on the Form I-20 A/B is considered by Immigration and Naturalization Service to be a Student VisaAbuser.– “An alien who obtains the status of a nonimmigrant under section 101(a)(15)(F) (I) and who violated a term or condition of such status under section 214 (l) is excludable from the United States for a continues period of years after the date of the violation.”
