Termination and Reinstatement

Once your SEVIS record has been terminated, you are expected to depart the U.S. immediately. In lieu of departing, students may be eligible to apply to USCIS for reinstatement to F-1 status through Franklin University.  The reinstatement application should be submitted to the U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Services (USCIS) within five months of termination.  To be eligible for reinstatement through Franklin University, students must be eligible to be enrolled in the next available term; therefore, students may not have any blocks on their records, such as for unpaid balances, academic suspension, or dismissal.  To apply for reinstatement, review the Reinstatement Instructions and email oisp@franklin.edu to request a reinstatement I-20 when application materials are ready.
