Losing your F1 status could lead to arrest and deportation by U.S. immigration officials, and denial of other visa requests in the future.
F1 students who have been out of status for more than 5 months need to show compelling reasons for not applying sooner, such as medical emergencies. If you have lost your F1 status, the application procedure for reinstatement is as follows:
Completed USCIS Form I-539 for reinstatement to F1 status
Money order for the filing fee
Two copies of each of these: your passport ID page, I-94 card front and back, F1 visa stamp, and all I-20s issued to you including I-20s issued from previous U.S. institutions you may have attended before coming to NLC. If you do not have a paper I-94 card, we will help find an electronic copy.
Copies of official transcripts from all U.S. schools you have attended
Letter from you addressed to USCIS explaining why you lost your F1 status and that it was due to reasons you could not control
USCIS should make a decision within three to five months. In the meantime you cannot travel out of the United States and you must maintain full-time enrollment at North Lake. Sometimes USCIS requests more information about your reinstatement. If this happens we will notify you immediately. Failure to respond may result in USCIS denying your reinstatement. If USCIS reinstates your F1 status, we will notify you immediately. If the request is denied, we will also notify you immediately. An F1 advisor can discuss the denial and your options. It is important that you make arrangements to leave the United States as soon as possible after a reinstatement application has been denied. You do have the option to consult a board certified U.S. immigration attorney to discuss your situation.
The NLC International Center is not responsible for reinstatement decisions made by the United States government.
