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 firstname.lastname@example.org to request a reinstatement I-20 when application materials are ready.
