Certificate of eligibility for non-immigrant students
Students may only remain in the U.S. until the I-20 end date. Travel signatures expire and should be renewed periodically. Signatures are valid for up to one year, though updates are recommended every six months.
Passport must be valid at all times while in the U.S.
Study visa at S.V.C.C. is type/class F-1
This document can be thought of as a “key” that allows an F-1 student to enter the U.S.
It is acceptable and legal for a student’s U.S. Visa to expire while they are in the U.S. as long as long as supporting documents remain valid.
Students simply cannot re-enter the U.S. border without a valid visa or “key”.
