Make normal progress towards completing the course of study.
Leave the U.S. 30 days after program completion or within 1 year of your arrival in the U.S. (whichever occurs first).
File for a timely extension of your I-20 (15-60 days before the date stamped on your initial I-94) if you will require more than 12 months to complete your program.
Keep a valid passport at all times.
Report a change of address to your International Student Advisor within ten days of the change. You may notify the International Student Advisor of address changes via email.
Update the signature on your I-20 after 6 months.
