If you plan to depart the United States during winter break, please remember to have your I-20 or DS-2019 form endorsed for travel. The Cranwell International Center will set aside a variety of dates so that students may have different opportunities to obtain their travel signatures. If students fail to receive their travel signature during one of the following scheduled times, the only option is to receive an I-515 at the U.S. Port of Entry upon your return to the United States. You will be given entry to the U.S. for a duration of 30 days. You will need to process the I-515 paperwork with our office immediately after your arrival in order to remain in F or J status for more than 30 days. This is not an option we recommend, as it will flag your SEVIS record. The Cranwell International Center staff will offer little to no service after December 20th as the university will be closed.
This is the schedule for obtaining travel signatures:
Friday, December 13 9-12 noon
Monday, December 16 1-5PM
Tuesday, December 17 9-12; 4-7PM
Wednesday, December 18 9-12; 4-7PM
Thursday, December 19 1-5PM
Friday, December 20 1-5PM
It is a U.S. Immigration Policy that F and J visa holders may only enroll for 3 online credit hours that can count towards full time enrollment. This policy mandates that F and J visa holders enroll for at least 9 credit hours in the classroom. For more information can be found here.
